Ribafreixo Wines has just been re-elected as the best Alentejo Winery in New York, USA
Ribafreixo Wines has just been honoured in New York, for the second consecutive year, as the Best Alentejo Winery – an individual recognition at the New York International Wine Competition, one of the most famous American competitions.
In this same competition, our red blend Pato Frio Red Edition 2016 was awarded with Gold Medal (94 pts) – Portugal Red Regional Wine, Alentejano category – and our two varietals Gáudio Verdelho and Gáudio Alvarinho were awarded with Silver Medal, both from the 2018 harvest, launched on the market about a month ago. These latter two were evaluated in the category of Portuguese White Wines.
The New York International Wine Competition, which is in its 9th edition, is one of the most prestigious in the American market, also having a great reach in the international panorama. This year it had more than 1400 submissions from 24 countries and in more than 50 categories.
For Mário Pinheiro, CEO of Ribafreixo Wines, “The fact that we are awarded, for the second time, Best Alentejo Winery in this market is the confirmation that we continue to walk the right path. The US market is very important for us, although quite competitive and demanding, it also becomes the most challenging. And we love a good challenge! “
