21 March 2015 / Cité Internationale / Lyon / France


Lyon is recognised as the capital of gastronomy and good taste, and so it was only natural that the city should be a showcase for the world’s best wines.
The Concours International de Lyon has a reputation in keeping with its prestigious partners: Les Toques Blanches Lyonnaises, the Association des Sommeliers de Rhône Alpes, Metro, and Global Wine and Spirits. The enthusiasm for this competition is widespread.

In 2014, some 3,685 samples from 22 countries were tasted, and millions of bottles won medals.
