The team at Quinta dos Vales reached again all their quality goals, winning for the third time “The Best Algarve Wine” (Gold and Grand Gold Medal at the 7th Wine Competition of the Algarve, in FATACIL in Lagoa, the August 16, 2014), this year with the Grace Vineyard 2009 red.
This serves to confirm the already recognized quality of wines “Marquis of the Valley”, after the Grace Vineyard 2008 Red have also won Gold at Mundus Vini in Germany last fall.
‘Having regard to the overall quality of the Algarve wines in recent years, Quinta dos Vales is especially proud to have proven once again be at the forefront as a competitive region, filled with highly enthusiastic wineries. Overcoming landmark of 100 international awards in the short space of seven years since the rebirth of this boutique winery is proof that the efforts of the team and selection procedures in the vineyard and in the winery really compensate. Congratulations also go to other Algarve wineries that had undoubtedly some excellent wines this year, “say those responsible for Quinta dos Vales.
The Algarve has marked its position as a legitimate wine region and seems likely to repeat the success story of the Alentejo in the mid 90s.
