Grenaches du Monde 2024: an Olympic performance for Roussillon

Roussillon climbed the Olympic podium in Paris at the 2024 Grenaches du Monde competition, winning 63 of the 318 medals awarded. 34 wineries shared 20 Double Gold, 32 Gold and 11 Silver medals.

9 of Roussillon’s 14 AOPs and 2 IGPs were recognised for their Grenache wines: AOP Banyuls, AOP Banyuls Grand Cru, AOP Collioure, AOP Côtes du Roussillon, AOP Côtes du Roussillon Villages, AOP Maury, AOP Maury Sec, AOP Rivesaltes and IGP Côtes Catalanes.

The 2024 Grenaches du Monde competition attracted a demanding and influential audience of professional tasters from all over the world. Experts gathered in a dynamic and business-like environment to assess Grenache wines in all their form: red, rosé, white, fortified, sweet or sparkling.

The competition highlights wineries and regions that work tirelessly to get the best from this multi-faceted varietal, and celebrate the culture and know-how of Grenache producers.
