La Seca, Valladolid, August 24, 2016.-
Once again the quality of the Cuatro Rayas Verdejo and Sauvignon is internationally recognized, this time in the Berliner Wein Trophy
, one of the world‘s most prestigious competitions. Cuatro Rayas Viñedos Centenarios, Cuatro Rayas Cuarenta Vendimias, Lagartijo, Bitácora, Blanco La Seca
and Visigodo Sauvignon
are the wines from Bodega Cuatro Rayas that were awarded a total of six gold medals.
Bodega Cuatro Rayas, a leader in the production and marketing of white wine in Castile and Leon, is a leader in the national and international market (they export to more than 60 countries) and last year achieved a sales revenue that was the best in the eighty year history of the cooperative winery: more than 23 million Euros, an amount that was 11% higher than that of the previous year and that solidified the winery‘s place among the five largest denominations of origin of Castile and Leon by wealth generated.
Among the six award-winning wines in the Berliner Wein Trophy, two star wines from the Rueda Denomination of Origin stand out: Cuatro Rayas Viñedos Centenarios
and Cuatro Rayas Cuarenta Vendimias
, verdejos that in recent years have become established as the flagships of the cooperative winery. Cuatro Rayas Viñedos Centenarios
, is a high-end wine made with grapes from vineyards that are more than one hundred years old. Developed on lees using the most traditional method of harvest and vinification that contribute all the elegance and balance.
For its part, Cuatro Rayas Cuarenta Vendimias
, which added a second gold medal to the one it received in the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles, 2016, is a wine that was developed in honor of their winemaker, Ángel Calleja, who in the 2015 growing season celebrated 40 vintages to his credit. This is a wine with an intense aroma and a lot of structure for sale exclusively to the hotel trade and the best wine cellars. It is a new benchmark of the Valladolid winery that has already become an essential item on the menus and in the bars of the very best restaurants.
