More Gold Medals for Algodon Wine

I am happy to share that four of our wines have won awards at the 9th edition of VINANDINO, an international competition of wines and spirits. Algodon Wine Estates 2006 Bonarda won a Gold Medal, and our 2006 Malbec won a Silver Medal.


This year’s competition included a total of 836 entrants from Germany, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador, France, Italy, Mexico, Peru, Uruguay, Brazil, Spain, Romania, Switzerland, Portugal and, of course, Argentina. The jury consisted of 35 international and 60 national experts.


In an unrelated competition called CODEVIN, a San Rafael wine tasting event organized by local winemakers, Algodon Wine Estates 2009 Bonarda and 2008 Malbec, were rated to be among the top 15 wines in region, out of a total of 120 entrants.


Congratulations to our winemaker Mauro Nosenzo (pictured above) and our Ambassador of Wine Camilo Aldao, as well as to all of our partners for the hard work they put in!
