Zeena Wines Win Gold Medal at Canned Wine Competition

Zeena was the only Spanish brand to receive an accolade, which confirms the product’s superior taste and unique packaging

The results from the 2022 International Canned Wine Competition are in, and a Spanish contestant took home two gold medals during the prestigious event. Mindful Drinkers, a Barcelona-based company, saw its Zeena 2021 sparkling and white wines receive this important accolade. The wines are organic and are produced in Catalonia’s Cava and Terra Alta designations of origin from Parellada and white Garnacha grapes, respectively.

Zeena’s canned wines come in packaging that is lightproof and easy to open, has a hermetic seal, doesn’t break, and keeps cool. They’re 100% recycled and recyclable aluminum and contain a special patented coating that maintains the wine’s quality and taste. The use of aluminum as opposed to glass reduces the amount of CO2 released into the atmosphere during manufacturing, recycling, and transportation.

According to the company’s CEO, Sana Khouja, “This competition is a pioneer in the canned wine category, and the most relevant in the sector today, with a large representation of wines from different regions around the world. The US is the number one country in terms of volume in this category, so the fact that the American market has endorsed Zeena's quality with an award is a guarantee of its success. Undoubtedly, it’s also the ‘push’ we needed to enter the world's leading canned wine market."
