THE winners of the annual ‘Alimentos de Espana’ award have been announced for 2014, but they aren’t from the usual Rias Baixas region.
Valencia’s Bodegas Murviedro took the prize alongside Ciudad Real’s Bodega Dehesa del Carrizal.
Murviedro’s top-notch vintage is their 2011 Cueva de la Culpa while Dehesa’s is their Petite Verdot label from 2010.
To be eligible for the awards – sponsored by Spain’s Ministry of Food, Agriculture and the Environment – competitors must have received the five highest marks at the Vinos Bacchus 2014 international wine competition last March.
The runners-up were Sauvignon Blanc 2013 from Bodegas Ramón Bilbao, Pedro Ximénez Tradición from Bodegas Tradición, Vall Sanzo Vendimia Seleccionada 2011 from Rodríguez Sanzo and Ysios Reserva 2007 from Pernod Ricard Winemakers Spain.
