Istrian Winery Rossi Outshines International Competition in Japan

April the 9th, 2021 - The Istrian winery Rossi, which is also a distillery, has become well known in distant Japan, shedding more light from that market onto beautiful Istria and its wide array of local produce.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, after winning the quality award at the European competition The Europe Wine & Spirits Trophy, where the Istrian winery Rossi won gold for their Teranino and Amaro Istriano, they decided to see how their products would pass in an international competition and enter the challenging Japan Wine Competition.

The Japanese competition is one that is held once a year, and in which a jury composed of experts from the world of wine and spirits has the task of determining the level of quality of all registered drinks. On a scale of 0 to 5, each registered drink must meet very special criteria, and only those with a grade of five may win gold.

The Istrian winery Rossi proudly found itself in that category three times, with their drinks Teranino, Gin Nostromo and Pelinkovac Epulon. Although the competitors were from mostly other European countries, the winners included producers and winemakers from all over the world.

By winning gold, the Istrian winery Rossi has quite rightly found itself in the very same prestigious category as the famous Belgian gin Clover Gin Lucky n ° 4 and many more big names in that world from various countries, including Norway.

It is worth mentioning that at the Rossi winery and distillery in Vizinada, in the northwest part of the Istrian peninsula, the story began with winemaking way back in 1885, and today they produce multi-award winning top wines, traditional Istrian brandies, premium craft liqueurs, gin and more.

In addition, the Rossi family who own the winery strategically invests in new and innovative technologies that help them maintain and raise the quality of the products they offer on the market, and in competitions like this one held in Japan, they work to continue spreading the story of the quality of local Croatian products.
