We wanted it, we did it! Yes, after several years of hard work, L.O Wine has finally been recognised for its œnological work and its expertise in wine.

It was nominated for the Wine Tourism Trophies within the “Creative Initiatives and Originalities” category! And this is worth it. Its workshops “Make your own wine” and “Wine & Fragrance” are among the most innovative of the wine sector!

Only one moral is to be remembered: hard work is never vain.

« L.O Wine was finally recognised for its œnological work and its expertise in wine. It was nominated for the Wine Tourism Trophies within the “Creative Initiatives and Originalities” category!”

But, then, what exactly is this œnological contest about?

Organised by the Wine Tourism Cluster of Atout France, which, for the occasion, gathered the Terre de Vins magazine and the actors of the viticultural branch, the Wine Tourism Trophies rose on October 2018. This wine tourism contest is mainly aiming at highlighting those who work in the viticultural, vinicultural as well as the touristic branch and who daily fight for proposing to the general public the best wine tourism offers. They want it always more qualitative and adapted to their public, in the national just as the international scale.

Domains, Châteaux, œnological companies and even viticultural regions, all were put in the spotlight during this international wine tourism competition. The Wine Tourism Cluster of Atout France, organiser of the event, wanted them to be rewarded for the multiple efforts they have made for years. That was the objective that was extoled for this first edition of the Wine Tourism Trophies.

Competition was hard…

Over 350 applications were left to the jury and L.O Wine played its cards right and managed to be nominated!!

The prize giving occurred more than 5 months after the launch of the wine tourism event of the year. This is how L.O Wine went to Paris on last March 29th, within Europe and Foreign Affairs Ministry, to join the other nominees and attend the results unveiling of the first edition of this wine tourism competition. L.O Wine at the Ministry, what an incredible thing to hear! But, yes, it did it!

After studying more than 350 viticultural properties, œnological companies and wine tourism regions, the outcome of this œnological adventure was spectacular. Several prizes were given: 9 Golden Grand Prix, 9 Silver Medals and 9 Bronze Medals. And, as a golden end, 3 Jury Special Prizes were also attributed.

In spite of L.O Wine not having received any prize, it is proudly that it flew Bordeaux’s wines and œnological entrepreneurship’s flag up in the French capital last March 29th. We were delighted to have been able to live this unforgettable wine tourism experience and, let’s remind it, to have been nominated to the Wine Tourism Trophies within the Creative Initiatives and Originalities category, amongst the biggest French viticultural and œnological names.
