„Excelenta cu suflet!”(Hearted excellence) sau  #PremiiledeExcelenta Vinul.ro 2014 RO/ENG

Dragi prieteni,

Anul acesta am fost invitat sa particip in juriul “Premiilor de Excelenta” organizat de Vinul.ro, care a avut loc la Brasov in perioada 04 – 07.11.2014
A fost o mare bucurie si onoare pentru mine sa degust si sa jurizez vinurile, alaturi de alti specialisti, jurnalisti, #winelover-i si pasionati de vinuri din Romania si din strainatate. Dintre participantii straini i-as mentiona pe Dusan(wines of Balkans), Ivana(vino.mk), Finkus(wine on the rocks) si Vladan Nikolic(oenolog), oameni extraordinari, participanti la concursurile importante din toata lumea si puternici promotori ai vinurilor din tarile lor de origine, dar si din Balcani in general. Probele inscrise in concurs au fost 219 la numar, si au fost impartite in vinuri retail, neimbuteliate si horeca. Au fost vinuri bune atat din Romania cat si din alte tari, astfel ca misiunea juriului a fost una grea, dar placuta. Nu putem nega evolutia pozitiva a calitatii vinurilor romanesti de la un an la celalalt. Datele tehnice le puteti afla achizitionand revista Vinul.ro sau urmarind revista online sau pe pagina de facebook. De mentionat este Marea medalie de Aur – Eclat – Late Harvest, Semillon Botrytis Valdivieso 2007 si cea mai buna Feteasca Neagra – Oprisor, Feteasca fiind obiectul unei jurizari separate. Organizarea generala a concursului a fost buna, dar evident perfectibila, insa acesta este un aspect neimportant. Cel mai important lucru legat de acest eveniment cred ca este atmosfera. Toate cele 4 zile au fost invaluite intr-o atmosfera placuta, prietenoasa, calduroasa si plina de voie buna. Tot timpul de dupa sesiunile de jurizare a fost plin de evenimente programate sau incropite spontan, de #winelover-i. Astfel am avut parte de 2 seri alaturi de Cercul de Feteasca – minutios organizat de Amalia Arva, unde s-au degustat minunate fetesti , dar si de o degustare organizata sub stindardul #winelover de catre subsemnatul, unde s-au degustat cca. 10 vinuri de prin toata Europa. In cele din urma degustarile continuau la cina servita in diverse locatii foarte primitoare cum ar fi restaurantul Stradivari si Terroirs Wine Bar, locuri manageriate de oameni pasionati si mari iubitori ai vinului.
Inchei prin a spune ca “cireasa de pe tort” a fost cina festiva, in cadrul careia s-au decernat si premiile de la concurs. Alaturi de deosebitele preparate culinare au fost puse la dispozitie si toate vinurile de la concurs; iar evenimentul s-a intins pana tarziu in noapte, seara incheindu-se cu o sesiune de karaoke si cu mult dans.
Daca ar fi sa sintetizez tot evenimentul intr-o singura propozitie, aceasta ar fi: “Excelenta cu suflet!!!”
In loc de noapte buna, va adresez tuturor motto-ul anului 2015 lansat de www.blog.pistoanebaricate.ro si pe care il voi folosi si promova tot anul viitor: “ #LetsKickSomeCorks ! “

Noapte buna natiune!

This year I was invited to attend the contest „Awards of Excellence” organized by Vinul.ro, which took place in Brasov during 04 – 07/11/2014, as a member of the jury.
It was a great joy and honour of tasting and wine judging alongside other professionals, journalists, # winelovers and enthusiasts of wine from Romania and abroad. Among the foreign participants would mention Dusan, Ivana, Finkus and Vladan, wonderful people, participating in major competitions worldwide and strong promoters of wine from their home countries, but also in the Balkans in general. There were submitted 219 samples and were divided into retail wines, unbottled and (HORECA) hospitality. There were good wines from Romania and other countries, so the jury had a difficult task, but enjoyable. We can not deny the positive evolution of the Romanian wines quality from one year to another. You can find the technical information by purchasing the “Vinul.ro” magazine or following the online magazine on Facebook. It is worth mentioning the Great Gold Medal – Eclat – Late Harvest, Botrytis Semillon 2007 Valdivieso, best Black Fetească – Oprisor, the Fetească wine being subject to separate jury. General organization of the competition was good, but obviously improvable, this being not such an important issue. The most important thing about this event, I think is the atmosphere. All four days were enveloped in a pleasant, friendly, warm and full of joy. After the judging sessions there were lots of events planned or spontaneously realized by the # winelovers. Thus, we had two nights with the Fetească Circle – carefully organized by Amalia Arva, where were tasted wonderful Feteasca wines and also a tasting session organized under the banner #winelover by the undersigned, where were tasted about 10 wines from all over Europe. Finally the tasting sessions continued at dinner, served in various hospitable locations such as Stradivari Restaurant and Terroirs Wine Bar, places managed by passionate people and great lovers of wine.
I conclude by saying that „icing on the cake” was the dinner, during which the competition prizes were awarded. Along with the distinguished dishes, were made available all the wines from the competition; and the event stretched late into the night, the evening ending with a session of karaoke and lots of dancing.
If I should synthesize the whole event in one sentence, it would be „Hearted excellence!!!”
Instead of goodnight, will address to all of you the 2015 motto launched by myself and that I will use and promote all next year: „#LetsKickSomeCorks! ”
