9 Barricas 2010 from Rioja Vega, awarded a Silver Medal, Outstanding, by the prestigious International Wine & Spirit Competition


June 2013. The highly demanding InternaTional Wine & Spirit Competition has classified our 9 Barricas 2010 as Outstanding and has further awarded it a Silver Medal.


9 Barricas; only nine barrels were enough to age this wine for 23 months. No more were needed to deliver the 2,500 bottles which carry the essence of a few and special vineyards of Tempranillo, Mazuelo and Graciano grapes. 9 Barricas 2010 is the second vintage of this convincing, brave and proud wine.


9 Barricas 2010 has competed against thousands of wines from all over the world in a challenge which this year celebrates its 44th edition. The IWSC is one of the oldest and most renowned wine competitions in the world. The wines must undergo a thorough analysis to make sure that the minimum technical and legal standards are observed. The judges include Masters of Wine, recognised wine critics, wine educators, producers and buyers.


The rigorous test carried out on the wines competing in the IWSC guarantees the results obtained.


It is not the first time that the IWSC has given Rioja Vega wines such high ratings. Our commemorative wine Rioja Vega 125 Aniversario was chosen Best Rioja in the World in a past edition.


Rioja Vega wines are accostumed to competing with the best wines in the world at different competitions. To name but a few of the accolades, the gold and silver medals recevied at consecutive editions of the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles, the International Wine & Spirit Competition, the Shanghai International Wine Challenge or the Japan International Wine Challenge.


All these awards and accolades, in addition to Guía Peñin’s and Robert Parker’s high ratings recognise the tireless work Rioja Vega carries out in the interpretation of the traditions of this privileged region to reach the most demanding quality standards and deliver Rioja Vega’s unique style in every single bottle.
