Girls, they wanna have fun – and Lajver!
80% of wines are purchased by women in the UK (Women and Wine Study by Vinexpo) – cites the press release of Women’s Wine & Spirits Awards 2021. This international competition operates ONLY with female buyers in the jury, which gives a special value to the medals won here. And Hungary is on the medal board! Holdvölgy Intuition No1 2013 from Tokaj won double gold, while Lajver Wine Estate from Szekszárd entered two wines, and both received gold medal!
Two luscious red wines
“Considering the significant rise in interest of women for the wine world, I am certain that it is of great importance for wine producers to acknowledge the value of female buyers giving beneficial insight into the market” – commented Dalia Leitenberg (Shangri-La Group), one of the 100 female buyers and hoteliers, who judged the thousands of entered wines of the 4th annual Hong Kong contest. Well, let us use the beneficial insight of them, and taste these wonderful wines!
