Bodegas Piqueras wines took centre stage again at Concours Mondial de Bruxelles. This time, our red Los Losares Garnacha Tintorera earned a Gold medal in the recent 28th edition of the competition, while Castillo de Almansa Reserva was awarded a silver medal.
This means that the 2018 vintage of Los Losares Garnacha Tintorera, which has yet to hit the shelves, has already got a gold medal, providing further recognition for what is being achieved at Bodegas Piqueras. Additionally, Castillo de Almansa Reserva won another silver medal to add to the same medal it was awarded at last year’s competition. This underlines the consistency, as well as the high quality of our best-selling wine internationally.
This sees Bodegas Piqueras confirm its standing as a winery that wins medals year after year at this prestigious and rigorous wine competition. One particular previous highlight was the was the award in 2019 of a Grand Gold medal to our Castillo de Almansa Selección, earmarking this 2014 vintage as one of the top Spanish wines.
