PAR® tasting method: Thanks to the transparency of the internationally recognized sensory testing system PAR, each submitted wine becomes a comprehensible and objective documentation of its sensory and oenological characteristics, which are always assessed with regard to respective authenticity and style.
The PAR training enables the qualified jury consisting of oenologists, sommeliers and wine experts (certified by the German IHK) to assess each wine neutrally, excluding personal preferences or preconceived opinions regarding “good taste”.

In the context of modern oenology, new international wine styles experience appreciation and acceptance also in PAR assessment.
Besides attracting attention brought by this award, many producers appreciate the revealing analyses underlying the PAR assessment. They show exactly which criteria have led to respective results and provide valuable documentation for the quality management. This system ensures an objective assessment with 100-point-pattern based on comprehensible documentation.
