A member of the World Federation of Major International Wine and Spirits Competitions (VINOFED) and placed under the patronage of the OIV, this competition stands out due to the fact that it showcases one country in each year, and for this 15th anniversary of this competition, the guest of honour was Hungary.

On this occasion, Mr Peter Gàl, Deputy State Secretary at the Hungarian Ministry of Agriculture and delegate for his country to the OIV, presented the various aspects of the Hungarian vitivinicultural field, its economy and professional structure. Furthermore, the sommelier Fruzsina Nagy emphasised the diversity of wine-growing areas, specific vine varieties and wine varieties produced in Hungary that were made available for discovery during a guided tasting.
