 La Seca, Valladolid, 4 May 2018.- The wines of Cuatro Rayas Winery achieved an outstanding place in 2019 Peñín Guide – guide of reference for the wineries in Spain. Amador Diez, Cuatro Rayas Cuarenta Vendimias, ‘61’ Dorado, Cuatro Rayas Viñedos Centenarios and Cuatro Rayas 1935, were scored 93, 92, 91 and 90 points respectively.

    Also, Cuatro Rayas Viñedos Centenarios added up a gold medal and Cuatro Rayas Verdejo, ‘61’ Dorado and ‘61’ Vermouth added a silver medal each, to their list of triumphs, at the 24th Iberian Wine Contest ‘Premios Mezquita’ held the last 23rd of April.

    Amador Diez is a Verdejo cuvée produced with grapes from the oldest vineyards of the winery and a careful selection of clusters. After fermenting in new French oak barrels and an 8-month bâtonnage, the result is a bright, full-bodied Verdejo wine with slightly roasted hints. Cuatro Rayas Cuarenta Vendimias is produced with grapes coming from more than 40-year-old gobelet-trained vines. Cuatro Rayas Viñedos Centenarios is a wine produced from our oldest vineyards and using the most traditional harvesting and winemaking methods, that provides the balance and elegance of the Verdejo variety. ‘61’ Dorado has been produced continuously since the foundation of the winery with the noblest artisan method: biological ageing using the solera system, and oxidative ageing in the last stage.

Peñín Guide is the most comprehensive guide in the world to Spanish wines and, especially, the most consulted by amateurs and professionals of the wine.

Cuatro Rayas Winery is located in the heart of Rueda; it accounts for 20% of the production in the Designation of Origin. The members own more than 2,300 hectares of vineyard. Since the foundation in 1935, it has been a pioneer adapting the new trends in viticulture and winemaking. The constant investments in technology, marketing, communication and know-how make the winery a benchmark in the production of Spanish white wines, both in Spain and worldwide.
