Wine Without Walls
Wine Without Walls is the section of 5StarWines – the Book dedicated to certified organic and/or biodynamic wines. The goal of Wine Without Walls is to spread awareness of sustainable viticulture and promote wines that most stand out in preserving the naturalness of the land, the vines and related products. Wine Without Walls is also an opportunity to recognize the commitment of producers in biodynamic, organic and sustainable agriculture, as they define new sustainable horizons both in the vineyard and in the cellar.
The wines that obtain a score equal to or greater than 90/100 are included in the special Wine Without Walls section of the 5StarWines – the Book, with respective score and tasting note. In addition to being an important recognition and informative contribution, the Book is also an effective promotional and commercial tool, distributed to an international audience of commercial operators and wine professionals.

THE RULES OF PARTICIPATION
Participation in Wine Without Walls is reserved for companies whose registered wines have obtained organic certification (European Regulation 203/2012, published in the Official Journal of the EU on 9 March 2012) or are biodynamic or, alternatively, are obtained from land in a state of conversion.

The blind tasting of the wines entered in Wine Without Walls takes place in parallel with that of 5StarWines.
The evaluation and selection of the wines entered in Wine Without Walls is conducted by a dedicated jury, made up of industry professionals specialized in wine products from biodynamic and organic agriculture.
The wines that are candidates for entering the Wine Without Walls section can belong to the still, semi-sparkling, sparkling, sweet and fortified categories.
All wineries whose wines obtain a rating of at least 90/100 receive an official diploma confirming the score, in print and digital format.
Each of the companies whose wines have obtained an evaluation of between 85 and 89/100 is sent a certificate of participation in the Selection in digital format.
