Slovenian winemakers won one gold, one silver and two bronze medals at the 12th international wine competition Chardonnay du monde 2005. The selection was made among 1090 chardonnay wines from 37 countries, said the Goriska brda wine cellar in a press release.

At the four-day event, which ended on Sunday, 13 March, the Goriska brda Wine Cellar was conferred a gold medal for its chardonnay bagueri 2003. Bronze medals went to Agroind Vipava 1894 for its chardonnay lanthieri 2001, and to the Simsic cellar for its chardonnay reserve 2002.

A silver medal was conferred on Matjaz Ramsak for his chardonnay maribor 2003, the only wine from the Northeast Slovenia to win an award, the rest being from the southwest.

At the wine tastings, which were held throughout the event following strict international standards imposed by the International Organisation of Vine and Wine, medals were conferred on 323 of the wines tasted.

The organisers granted 64 gold medals, 189 silver and 70 bronze ones, while a special medal called the Gold Medal of Excellence was not given out this year.
