About Mundus Vini
It was founded in 2001 in Germany, and the target of the competition is to promote quality and the marketing of the wines entered. Likewise, the awards are intended to offer producers, winegrowers, importers and consumers a forum, which, firstly, permits a comparison of the different wines and offers a valuable help with decision-making and orientation when buying wine and, secondly, reaches a wide public. While welcomed by wine customers as a helpful orientation aid, awards provide producers with recognition of their hard work.
