Another day, another distinction for a Spanish winery. This time, the recognition comes from Drinks International, which rewarded Bodegas Valdemar, in Rioja, for its Innovative Tourism Experience.

Said one of the winery owners, “International recognition for our efforts is something you never expect. All of our hard work aimed at creating proximity to the world of wine for as many people as possible is all worth it when you receive recognition like this… And we will work with the same focus at our winery in the US,” according to laprensadelrioja.com.

Bodegas Valdemar is no stranger to awards. In 2018 it was recognized on multiple occasions for its commitment to accessibility, and it recently created the very first inclusive visit for people with cognitive, hearing, visual and physical impairments, giving them the ability to enjoy a wine tourism experience.

Valdemar will be opening its first winery in the US in April of 2019, in Walla Walla, Washington. It’s the first non-US winery to open a facility in that area.

This award is part of the 2019 Drinks Tourism Challenge, which seeks to celebrate winemakers, distilleries and wine producers for their excellence and innovation. They recognize the best visitor centers, wine events, accommodation, digital and social media initiatives, retail experiences, food and wine matching experiences, and innovative tourism experiences.
