Some of the winery’s most iconic wines returned medalists. At the head of the awards and with the distinction Great Gold was classified the Vidigueira Grande Escolha Tinto, and the Vidigueira Antão Vaz Premium and Vidigueira Grande Escolha Branco, were distinguished with the other two Gold medals. The silver medals went to Vidigueira Touriga Nacional and Aguardente Vínica Velha Reserva.

José Miguel Almeida, President of ACVCA is “enormously recognized by these international awards, which once again prove that Vidigueira and especially the Adega Cooperativa produce some of the best wines in Portugal. Returning from the event with all these awards is an indication that we are still on the right track”.

The panel of judges was composed of 40 experts of seven nationalities, who analyzed the 462 wine samples from countries such as Brazil, Uruguay, Chile, France, Portugal, and Spain, among others. An observer from the International Wine Organization (O.I.V) was present to verify compliance with the blind tasting rules.
