Autori s ocenenim od OIV

Six international wine-related publications were awarded on the occasion of the 2006 XIX International Congress of Vine and Wine. The New Encyclopaedia of Czech and Moravian Wine was unanimously selected in the “Monography and expert publication propagating the field of vine growing and winemaking” category. The encyclopedia was up against books from traditional wine-producing countries such as France, Spain and Italy in the same category.

The publications are judged by experts from all over the world (university professors, journalists, scientists, historians etc.) on basis of their original content.
