During this period, the producers were under the scrutiny of the Regular Jury, made up of 135 specialists, 111 national and 24 international jurors from the sector, including oenologists, sommeliers, journalists, wine educators. Among the international judges are Bob Paulinski MW and John Lancaster from the USA; Ewa Starzycka, Wojciech Starzycki and Adam Tomczak from Poland; Martin Mortensen of Sweden; Mike Turner, UK; Michelle Carlín, from Mexico; Thomas Vaterlaus of Switzerland; Yumi Tanabe, from Japan; Joseph Cho, from South Korea; Sebastião Vemba, from Angola and Michael Tremblay, from Canada. In those three days there were also Masterclasses, dinners with producers, visits and multiple wine tastings.

On the 11th and 12th of May, the Grand Jury met at the CVR Beira Interior, in Guarda, for the 2nd phase of the Contest, when they elected the Great Gold Awards and the Best of the Year, which were revealed at the Dinner and Award Ceremony Awards that took place on the 12th of May, at the Logistic Center of Pinhel.

This ViniPortugal initiative distinguished, for the 10th consecutive year, the best national wines for their unique quality, guiding and motivating producers to launch distinctive wines that contribute to positioning Portugal as a reference producer in export markets. In this context, and as in previous editions of the Contest, ViniPortugal also guarantees the presence of the winners of the Great Gold and Gold medals in international events that will take place during the year.

As well as distinguishing the best wines on the national market, the Wines of Portugal Contest is a meeting point for national and international producers and specialists who, for a week, share experiences and create synergies between them.
