The most prestigious competition for the evaluation of the Bulgarian wines and spirits is the National Wine and Spirits Tasting organized by the National Vine and Wine Chamber during the Wine Festival within the framework of VINARIA .

At the traditional “Night of the Golden Rhytons” Ball, the best wines are awarded the Golden Rhyton Prize of International Fair Plovdiv, honorary diplomas, “Wine of the Year” certificates, gold, silver and bronze medals.
