The International Organic Wine Award has also awarded a silver medal to Cuatro Rayas Organic Tempranillo and Rosé reassuring the quality of the organic and vegan wines of Bodega Cuatro Rayas

La Seca (Valladolid), 12 July 2019.-
Cuatro Rayas Organic Verdejo, Cuatro Rayas Organic Tempranillo and Cuatro Rayas Organic Rosé were awarded a gold and two silver respectively in the latest edition of the international organic wine award, considered one of the most important competitions in the organic agriculture industry. In this year, wineries and distributors out of 28 countries with more than 1000 organic wines have taken part.

     Cuatro Rayas Organic Verdejo, Cuatro Rayas Organic Tempranillo and Cuatro Rayas Organic Rosé –the organic range of Cuatro Rayas– represent the most environmentally conscious and winemaking process consistent wines. Each design portraits an example of the biodiversity in the vineyard, perceived as a natural and wild entity, depicting the fauna that lives in it and which is necessary for maintaining the main functions of the winegrowing agrosystem. A controlled presence of insects and protective birds are synonymous with health, quality and natural management in the process of harmful pests to the vine. Also, these three brands have the seal of the European Vegetarian Union to certify that all of the products used in the winemaking process are considered vegan. 

About the International Organic Wine Award Organised by the Wine System AG, the International Organic Wine Award is the only contest authorised by the European Union following the PAR-System, an “incorruptible tasting system that favours greater recognition of the wines, a precise assessment of the organoleptic sensations and a verifiable rating” according to the international juries.

Since the foundation in 1935, it has been a pioneer adapting the new trends in viticulture and winemaking. The fundamental pillars of the winery are wine and social sustainability, taking particular attention to the environment and living conditions of its members and employees.
