Szekszard: Hungary’s new red wine discovery

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Some of Hungary’s best wines come from the Szekszard area in the southwest of the country. The 2.700 hectares spanning wine growing region, almost 150 kilometers away from the capital Budapest, is famous for its red wines, mainly made of Kekfrankos, Kadarka, Cabernet and Merlot. But unfortunately the fame of those wines is almost unknown outside of the Hungarian borders.

To present the excellent, multifaceted wines from Szekszard to you, nine members of the Szekszard Winemakers Guild will introduce themselves for the first time from March 24-26 on the world’s biggest professional trade fair for wine, the ProWein in Dusseldorf. We want to invite you to two tastings, hosted by the renowned wine writer and Hungary connoisseur Rudolf Knoll on March 24 and March 26:

“Szekszard: Hungary’s new red wine discovery”

March 24, 10.00 – 10.45 am and March 26, 12.00 – 12.45 pm

in the ProWein Forum, Hall 7.1

The winemakers of Bodri Pinceszet, Duszi Tamas Pinceszete, Eszterbauer Kft., Heimann Csaladi Birtok, Meszaros Borhaz, Schieber Pinceszet, Szeleshat Szolobirtok, Takler Pince and Vida Csaladi Borbirtok will be there to answer questions after the tastings.

Three times silver, three times gold


Winners of the INTERVITIS INTERFRUCTA 2013 Innovation Award announced
/ Expert jury also presents special award




There were 7 winners of the INTERVITIS INTERFRUCTA Innovation Award 2013, selected from a total of 82 submissions by a jury of 36 international experts. “The independent jury had obviously set the bar quite high!,” remarked President of the German Winegrowers’ Association (DWV), Norbert Weber, in view of the fact that there were actually four gold and four silver awards up for grabs.

The seven award-winners included Bucher Vaslin and Pellenc, as well as two international suppliers from the processing and process control sector, who took home gold. Among the five German winners was Meomix, a company from Neustadt-Duttweiler, recognised with gold for its professional and individual approach to marketing wine growers on Facebook. Silver went to the following exhibitors at INTERVITIS INTERFRUCTA 2013: the company Clemens from Wittlich in cooperation with Wagner from Friedelsheim for their innovative technology used in the cleaning and lifting of vine shoots; the company Rink from
Kreuztal for a machine that makes the removal of sleeves much simpler; the company Nephele Idea from Mainz for its management software for wine growers which, for the first time, is fully based on Cloud technology. Furthermore, a special award was presented to the company Anseros Klaus Nonnenmacher from Tubingen for its innovative cask steriliser. During the ceremony, DWV President Norbert Weber made reference once again to the basic concept and reason behind the competition: “The German Winegrowers’ Association, as organiser of INTERVITIS INTERFRUCTA, is recognising the superb achievements of exhibitors who are contributing to the progress of our industry. We need this technical advance in order to continually improve the quality of our products, and hold our own in the eyes of the customer on the global market.”

From the 82 submissions, 29 were recognised as being innovative. Norbert Weber: “In my opinion, this shows that the supplier industry is constantly working on improving the already high technical standards through contact with the sector and, at the same time, the jury was not looking to present arbitrary awards. I feel it should also be noted here that neither the German Winegrowers’ Association or Messe Stuttgart, and much less the supplier industry, are represented on the jury, to ensure completely impartial results.” Among these innovative newcomers, three submissions that represented a “decisive improvement” on current technological standards were selected by the jury to take home gold. Three entries were seen to represent a “considerable improvement” and awarded silver.

DWV Secretary General Dr. Rudolf Nickenig views the competition, which is part of the larger Stuttgart event, as “the combination of international trade fair INTERVITIS INTERFRUCTA, internationally represented winegrowers’ congress, machinery demonstrations and tasting workshops, that together provide exhibitors and visitors alike with a globally unique platform. The exchange of experience and information among scientists, advisors, representatives of the supplier industry and practitioners makes a significant contribution towards triggering further innovative and technical development.” The INTERVITIS INTERFRUCTA Innovation Award 2013 accepted entries for processes, technical products and services in four categories:

• Cultivation and harvesting techniques for grapes and fruit
• Processing and process control for wine, fruit juice and spirits
• Filling and packaging technology
• Marketing and organisation

The entries were assessed according to the following criteria:

• Degree of innovation
• Importance and applicability to everyday use
• Advantages for the company and the workers
• Impact on the quality of the end product
• Improvement of environmental and energy situation
• Effect on occupational safety
• Impact on marketing

With regard to those entries recognised, Norbert Weber added: “Altogether, it shows that automation and new opportunities for communication in our industry are becoming increasingly more important.” Also, he continued, the influence of international competitors; among the 29 recognised entries, eight products came from international exhibitors, who also took home two gold awards from among the seven awards presented overall. “Our own German suppliers are well positioned, not only to hold their own on the international stage, but to also set the trends as leading market players.” In the process, INTERVITIS INTERFRUCTA has become an international market place. One third of exhibitors come from outside Germany; in 2010, visitors represented 70 different countries. Norbert Weber: “I would
like to appeal to everyone again to look beyond their home ground. And from 24 to 27 April (the congress starts a day earlier), INTERVITIS INTERFRUCTA and the 61st German Winegrowers’ Congress provide the perfect opportunity to do so!”





Conference on ecological fruit cultivation INTERVITIS INTERFRUCTA 2013: On 26 April, the focus will be on cultivation systems, greenery and suitable types and soils

INTERVITIS INTERFRUCTA is not only a technology exchange for the producers of wine, fruit, fruit juice and spirits – at the same time, it also serves as a top-quality platform for the exchange and transfer of know-how between science and practical application.


Under the umbrella of the 61st German Winegrowers' Congress, in addition to a whole series of events on the topics of wine, fruit juice and spirits, an international specialist conference on the latest developments in ecological fruit cultivation will therefore also be held during INTERVITIS INTERFRUCTA 2013 on Friday, 26 April. The Society for the Promotion of Ecological Fruit Cultivation (Föko), with headquarters in Weinsberg, will be responsible for the programme. Like all the other conferences during the 61st German Winegrowers' Congress, the presentations on 26 April will also have simultaneous German/English interpreting, and will also be of interest to specialist visitors from abroad.
The theme of the programme will be the further development of the cultivation system with regard to the basic principles of ecological agriculture. Some main areas of focus in this work, such as the integration of nature protection targets in the cultivation system, the optimisation of greenery management to encourage beneficial organisms, approaches for the improvement of recycling management in fertilisation by means of dense sowing of legumes in rows of trees and various types and soils for ecological fruit cultivation, as well as the activities of the Föko e.V. network will be presented and discussed at the conference. The event starts at 9.00 and finishes at around 18.00. Further information is available on the Internet at
