Whether on home ground, in faraway Berlin or high up in the air, Schmidweine knows how to hold its own and does not shy away from competition.
It is common practice on the farm to take part in wine awards. For the image, but also to see where you stand with your own wines. Thomas Schmid, himself a wine taster for wine awards, is especially happy when his own products can keep up with the competition. Being able to assert yourself against several hundred companies or wines strengthens your position.
Since son Fabio Schmid is studying in Germany, Schmidweine ventured into the Berlin Wine Trophy and faced the competition abroad. To everyone's great delight they won gold in 2019 with their Sauvignon Blanc. In 2020 they even won four times gold and the special award "Best Producer Switzerland".
Schmidweine was also on top of the world when it won a tender oft he airline Swiss against the competition. For half a year, passengers in first class on the airline drank wine from the winery in Schlattingen. A wonderful opportunity with a lucrative side effect: for once, the company received numerous orders from abroad, especially from Germany. At times it was even more than from Switzerland.
