The 2016 event was a vintage year in terms of the quality of the competing works. 

27 countries were represented during registrations: a record since the OIV Awards were created.

Furthermore, as an exceptional measure, the OIV Grand Prix award went to both Pierre Galet as well as Jancis Robinson for their contribution to the dissemination of knowledge of the wine sector and in acknowledgement of their internationally recognised work.
