Gál Tibor Award

It has been a tradition since 2006 that the Gál Tibor Award is announced during the Ball of Hungarian Wines. Tibor Gál was an exceptional oenologist and winemaker from Eger and played a key role in modern-day Hungarian wine history, we can find his name even in international professional literature.

Based on our traditions we renewed the Gál Tibor Award in 2014 in order to enable wine-loving audience to meet new experts besides the well-known winemakers. Recipients of the Winemaker of the Year Award and Winemaker’s Winemaker Award recommend a winemaker from their wine region to whom the proper attention has not been paid before. Recommended names will be posted on our website and Facebook page at the beginning of 2017 and audience can vote for them. Since 2014 in addition to the honour, the Gál Tibor Award contains an online advertisement package of 500 000 HUF.
