Rewarding the women and men of agriculture
The main purpose of this agricultural competition is to promote the quality of French local products on a national and international scale. Winning an award is a real honor for any artisan. The medals of this competition, affixed directly to the products, are the emblem of French craftsmen proud of their region and their products. The award-winning cheeses, wines and oils guarantee an authentic tasting experience. By choosing a medal-winning product, you are tasting the traditions of a region of our country. These award-winning craftsmen, guardians of ancestral know-how, have devoted their lives to the production of high-quality products. Each year, the Concours Général Agricole will unveil a selection of products from French agriculture that will delight the most discerning gourmets. At Château Virant, we are very proud to take part in this competition and to win the highest prizes. Our olive oils and wines have been recognized for their true value by a jury of experts.
The pride of being a competition winner
Each year the Ministry of Agriculture organises the Concours Général Agricole to promote French crafts and gastronomy. Farmers are divided into several categories according to the products they offer. Château Virant therefore submits its wines and olive oils to the taste buds of the jury. The jury, composed of bon vivants, amateurs and professionals, is responsible for awarding medals from bronze to the coveted gold. They determine a ranking according to the quality of the wines, oils or cheeses they taste. The competition is tough. Each participant hopes to seduce the jury and be awarded the highest distinction. It is a prize that is won with the heart. And it is by putting all our love for our land into our products that we have made the most awarded olive oil in France. We are very proud to count this success in our awards. If the competition is so highly valued, it is because the jury only selects the best. Each year the Chamber of Agriculture presents the best gastronomic products that will delight the palate of gourmets.
