Press release 03/11/2020


On Monday 2 November, the panel of experts for the 2020 Innovation Trophies announced their results: 10 companies were awarded trophies, with a total of 2 GOLD TROPHIES, 2 SILVER TROPHIES, 6 BRONZE TROPHIES and 7 SPECIAL MENTIONS.

New solutions and achievements were highlighted that respond to the environmental, economic and social challenges of the future. The 2020 Innovation Trophies produced “a diverse and original vintage”, praised by Christophe Riou and Pierre Gaillard. Highlights included the introduction of plants through varietal innovation and the vine nursery’s collective and sustainable commitment. Winners also included winery and vinification innovations, as well as machine process adaptations for more responsible practices.

Even under exceptional circumstances, the quality of submissions for these Trophies once again reflected the dynamism of our manufacturers, who are ready to take on any challenge.

The all-online event
for the wine, arboriculture and vegetable production industries

With the same ambition of gathering the entire community of wine, arboriculture and vegetable production industries for a 3-day event, VINITECH-SIFEL–while not being held in person this year–has adapted and innovated by creating VINITECH-SIFEL VIRTUAL on 1-3 December.

At this all-digital event, professionals will have the opportunity to meet suppliers and distributors in a “DIGITAL HALL”, source new suppliers, discover their latest innovations, make connections, and target contacts via the “NETWORKING” area. VINITECH-SIFEL VIRTUAL also has an “AUDITORIUM” where it can offer some fifty live conferences, scientific sessions and forums.

All of these features are available for “visitor” participants free of charge. The virtual platform will open on 16 November.
