Vinos de las bodegas Castaño y Barahonda se han llevado los principales premios del certamen que organiza cada año la denominación de origen Yecla y que en esta ocasión ha contado en el jurado con expertos de la talla de Colin Harkness, Catador del panel International Wine and Spirits (IWSC) y Peer F Holm, vicepresidente de la Asociación de Sumilleres de Alemania.

En concreto, en la categoría de tintos con madera ganó el vino de la marca “Barahonda Summun” del año 2014, mientras que en esa categoría, pero de mayor añada el premio se lo llevó el “Casa Cisca” del 2012, de bodegas Castaño.

En la categoría de vinos dulces el premiado fue “Bellum el Remate” 2014, de bodegas Barahonda, y en blancos, “Estío 2015”, de bodegas La Purísima.

En categoría de rosados el ganador fue “Dominio Espinal 2015”, de bodegas Castaño, y en tinto sin madera fueron dos marcas las que obtuvieron premio “ex aequo”: Castaño Monastrell 2015 y La Purísima Monastrell 2015.

One thought on “Media”

  1. We listened to Total 91.8 FM for the first time last week and enjoyed the show. Colin was very good, with a mixture of good records and interesting chat.
