Albet i Noya prize-winner in the 3rd edition of Tàstum

Our cellar has been recognised and awarded in the third edition of the Catalonia Agro-alimentary Forum. These awards are organised by the Department of Agriculture, Food and Rural Action with the aim of easing the relationship between producers, transformers, distributors and chefs to stimulate a debate about the future that this sector has to follow, the first industrial sector in Catalonia.

According to the jury’s verdict, made up of prestigious professionals, the Tàstum Vine and Wine Production award has gone to Josep Maria Albet, in recognition of his efforts, determination and career in ecological wines. As technical director, Josep Maria received the prize in representation of the ecological cellar.

For Josep Maria this an award that he feels very proud of and said so to the whole team: ..."Therefore it is a recognition that I think we should all be proud of, although it was awarded to me in person without the team behind me I am sure it would not have been given to me, and the efforts that I spoke about are those made by everybody."

The award ceremony was held on the 18th of October in the National Theatre of Catalonia, presided by the President of the Catalan Government, José Montilla, accompanied by the Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Action, Joaquim LLena.
