We received the Award for the Best Wine Tourism Initiative from the FEGP at the 2017 “Company Night” awards

“La Nit de l’Empresa 2017” (The 2017 Company Night) was held on the Mas Solers estate in Sant Pere de Ribes on the night of 22nd June; it’s one of the most important business events in Gran Penedès, organised by the new FEGP (the Federation of Entrepreneurs of Gran Penedès and Garraf). At the event, the Federation’s new corporate image was presented, arising from the merger of the UEP (Business Union of Penedès) and the ADEG (Association of Entrepreneurs of Penedès Garraf). 

The awards given were to recognise the good work of 18 companies in Gran Penedès and Garraf. 

Carles Puigdemont, President of the Generalitat de Catalunya (Catalonia’s autonomous government), and Jordi Baiget, Minister of Business and Knowledge, presided over the act, along with other government authorities, who attended alongside as many as 600 other people, including representatives of companies and institutions of Alt Penedès, Baix Penedès, and Garraf. 

We were one of the companies called to the podium to receive an award, and this time it wasn’t for one of our wines, but for our work in the development and promotion of Wine Tourism, an initiative we have been involved in for over 4 years. 
This work led the FEGP to give us the 2017 FEGP Award in the Area of Wine Tourism. 

This is important recognition of the boom in wine tourism headed by Josep Maria Albet i Noya’s vineyard in recent years, which will only strengthen its resolve to encourage these activities, so that one day they may become one of the main points of its business.
