El Fanio 2012, voted best Xarel·lo in the Penedès

At the 48th DO Penedès Wine Competition we were awarded three gold medals and a Diploma of Excellence.

El Fanio 2012 was awarded the Gold medal in the Xarel·lo category, making it the best Xarel·lo in the DO Penedès. This year the organisers added a new category exclusively for wines made of Xarel·lo to further consolidate and promote the flagship variety of the Penedès.

We were also awarded Gold medals for the Pinot Noir/Merlot Clàssic and for the Brut Barrica 21 as well as a Diploma of Excellence for the Brut Nature Reserva 3.

The DO Penedes Competition is organised by the Academia Tastavins del Penedès, with technical support from the DO Penedès. It is one of the oldest competitions in Catalunya and Spain, and awards wines produced in the DO Penedès. Wines are tasted blind by a jury of sommeliers, journalists, winemakers and restauranteurs. 130 wines from 60 producers were presented this year.
