Winning wines in the 2015 Grenaches du Monde Competition

On Monday 9th May, the award-winning wines were made public at one of the wine competitions that, despite its short history, it has reached the international spotlight with force in recent years: Grenaches du Monde 2015.

This is a competition which, above all, pays homeage to the Garnacha, one of the most cultivated grape varieties in the world, present in many countries. Also, it comes at a time where knowledge of this variety is expanding. It is an opportunity to discover possibilities, the richness and diversity of wines made from Garnacha.



The results obtained by Spanish Garnachas have been excellent, dominating the wine list, more than 70 medals were awarded, 4 more than France. Regarding different regions, Catalan and Aragonese Garnachas have been the most widely awarded.

This latest Grenaches du Monde 2015 competition closes with a total of 32 gold medals, 30 silver medals and 8 bronze medals for Spanish wines.
