Jan 2006 Press

February 17th, 2006 | Uncategorized

We have been pretty successful in Spanish wine guides over the last few years, slowly but surely gaining ground in the ratings. In this years Guia Gourmets our wines were placed third and seventh in the category of best young white wines of Spain (Not just Galicia or Rias Baixas).

Our flagship wine Castro Martin was third in this classification and Avian was seventh, but in the category of value for money they were second and third respectively – again for the whole of Spain.

“In this year´s guide we highlight the high marks obtained by all the CastroMartin wines, and emphasise their terrific value for money”……… Guia Gourmets 2006

Meanwhile over in Denmark, the January 2006 edition of top food and wine magazine ‘Smag and Behag’ rated two of our wines first and second in their tasting of Albariños. The wines in question this time – Castro Martin and Casal Caeiro. No doubt the comments were good, but to be frank we didn’t understand a word! (Our Danish importer is however, working on the translation).

‘The Province’ newspaper in British Columbia, Canada also enjoyed our Castro Martin, commenting “Supple and sensual with gobs of tropical guava and apricot pit, it´s a winner that will turn you back onto wine´s lighter shades”.

We have more press to add from Australia, but will leave this for our February press posting……
