Frittmann Winery, the passionate producer of Irsai Olivér wines – will they prove their philosophy with a new award? As for roses, is it rewarding to go for premium quality, so will Lajver Premium Rose 2020 be awarded? And Kadarka Man, who gives every attention to his Kadarka vines, will his Heimann & Sons Porkoláb-völgy Kadarka 2018 get another accolade?
