Matarromera’s Prestigio Named Best Red Old World Wine in China

One Spanish wine went home a winner from the international Qwine Awards, held in Qingtian, China as part of the QWINE Expo, which ran from November 17th to the 19th.

Prestigio, from Bodegas Matarromera, took home the Best Red Old World Wine distinction. This limited production wine, of which there are only 14,500 bottles, is made at its Pago de las Solanas vineyard and stands out in particular for being elegant and modern. This is the vineyard where the winemaker makes its most exquisite wines. Prestigio is a dark red, voluminous wine which tastes of ripe fruit and sweet tannins; it has a long finish.

The panel of judges comprised trade professionals, including importers and specialized wine distributors in China. Bodegas Matarromera operates in over 80 countries, which account for 35% of its current turnover. The Spanish winery is firmly dedicated to international growth, and is committed to expanding its reach in Asia, which it considers a key market for high-end wine exports. It has already been operating there for a decade, but it remains focused on expanding its footprint. Matarromera operates in six different DOs in Spain: Ribera del Duero, Rioja, Rueda, Toro, Ribeiro and Cigales.

Qingtian, China is an important city for wine and is responsible for a major boom in imports. There are even plans to create a Global Wine Center there.
