Diam Bouchage, a major partner at the Revue du Vin de France event for many years, was yet again alongside the organizers for this 2020 edition.
During this event, awards are presented to professional winemakers whose work has had a significant impact during the year. Diam Bouchage, being particularly involved in the research and development of innovative products, is appointed each year to award the prize in the “Innovation” category.
The 2020 version of the award has evolved to logically include the environmental aspect. Indeed, the winemaking challenges of today and tomorrow are already linked to our capacity to innovate with due regard to nature and the type of society in which we wish to live.
