Mendoza, Argentina (PRWEB) May 21, 2013
On May 20, 2013, Decanter announced the winners of the 2013 World Wine Awards, now in their 10th year. This year, 219 wine experts from 27 countries (including 75 Masters of Wine and 13 Master Sommeliers) tasted through an all-time record of 14,362 wines to come up with 156 regional trophy winners.
The regional trophy for Best Argentine Malbec over 15 British Pounds ($20 USD) went to Casarena’s 2010 Jamilla’s Vineyard S.V. Malbec. Winemaker Bernardo Bossi is proud of the award and says, “Of the 5 regional trophies that went to Argentina, this is the most coveted.”
Export manager Martin Perez Cambet says of Decanter, “The World Wine Awards provide yet-unknown wineries with the opportunity to shine on a grand stage. We hope to grab the attention of the European importers.”
Casarena is currently available in the domestic Argentine market and is presently exported to the United States, Denmark, Brazil, and Mexico.
