Lambrusco inaugurates the first of the HappyWiners Wine Battles, a game between wine lovers in which different blind bottles are tasted combined with a single theme, in order to choose the best wine among the contenders

The 6 hidden bottles

- 10 participants
- 6 blind bottles
- Simple rating scale from 1 to 5 points:

1pt I don't like it,
2pt So and so
3pt Good
4pt Very good
5pt Excellent

Important clarification

It is a goliardic game and has no technical basis but it is a simple comparison between wine lovers. We wanted to recreate a sample of the real world, in which there are men, women, experienced and less experienced people. The wine that won the Wine Battle is NOT the absolute best "Lambrusco", but simply what the 10 participants liked best.

The 6 bottles "in the race" do not represent the 6 best Lambrusco wines on the market and were simply chosen at random from among those of the same category. Certainly there are very different realities, from the small company to the national giant, from the organic and environment-friendly company to the one that makes millions of bottles and sells them to supermarkets. At the same time, the bottles chosen do not cover all the different types of Lambrusco geographically, but this will allow us to organize further Wine Battles.

The results

The first HappyWiners Wine Battle was a success. A beautiful evening with wine lovers, where we laughed and joked and drank excellent wines in pleasant company. 

We proceed to the final counting of the votes with a big surprise: there are two wines ex aequo in the third place and the second one precedes them only by one point. The winner instead is first with so much advantage.
This is the final podium:

  1. Otello NerodiLambrusco - Ceci 
  2. Vigna del Cristo - Cavicchioli
  3. Ex aequo: Radice Paltrinieri - Puro! - Vitivinicola Fangareggi
