I edition of the 2013 Vinari Awards: gold and bronze for Albet i Noya and Mas Igneus

This has been the first edition of the Vinari Awards and we have merited three prizes.
One Gold Vinari for the best aged red for Costers de l'Ermita 2011 by Mas Igneus , and a Bronze Vinari for Mas Igneus FA112 2011 and Brut 21 Barrica Gran Reserva 2007.

The awards ceremony was held just last Friday in the Vilafranca del Penedès Auditorium. It was a very emotional awards ceremony as this has been the first edition of a competition that started out with the aim of recognising the high quality of Catalan wines. The Auditorium was full to the brim and just after the awards ceremony the attendees had a chance to taste all the winning wines.

Over 700 references from the 12 Catalan Denominations of Origin entered the competition. All of them were tasted and judged by a team of 49 sector professionals who decided to give awards to 155 wines from amongst all the references.
These 155 winners were very well spread out, which only highlights the quality of the Catalan wine producing areas and the professionalism that exists in the sector.
