The award jury presidents, Jean-Luc Berger and Pierre Gaillard, highlighted the fact that NDtech is the latest and most advanced technology in the combat to eliminate TCA and is playing a key role in improving the quality of wines.

The award ceremony will be held on 30 November, during Vinitech Sifel (29 Nov. - 1 Dec.) - the bi-annual international trade show for the wine, fruit and vegetable production sectors, that places a special focus on highlighting new innovations in the sector.

The Vinitech-Sifel Innovation Awards profile new products, processes and technologies that are defining the future of viticulture and winemaking and fruit and vegetable production. The awards include a special jury prize, 2 gold awards, 3 silver awards, 4 bronze awards and 11 special mentions.

NDtech has also won a Silver Medal in the Filling and packaging technology category of the Innovation Awards of the bi-annual Intervitis Interfructa Hortitechnica, the international technology trade fair for wine, juice and special crops.

The Innovation Awards are attributed by the German Winegrowers’ Association in cooperation with DLG (German Agricultural Society) for technical processes, systems, products or services.
