Enoforum Award 2018

Here is the list of the 12 candidates selected for the Enoforum Award 2018

Enoforum Award 2018

The first phase of evaluation of the candidates for the Enoforum Award 2018 "Spanish Research for Development" has concluded.

The Enoforum 2018 Prize, worth € 5000, is intended for the work of a Spanish researcher who has been able to carry out a work of high scientific value and deemed useful by the experts in the wine sector.

In the first phase, a Scientific Committee composed of 20 Spanish academics, has selected among all the candidate works (21 in this edition) those considered in general more innovative.

 The second phase will consist in the oral presentation of these selected works in Enoforum 2018 (Zaragoza, May 31-June 1, 2018), where the participating technicians will evaluate them based on the usefulness for their own work. The classification will establish, in this way, the finalist works and the winning work.
