Viñedos Emiliana, producent van o.a. onze biologische Elemental Syrah en O Viognier, is onlangs door Wines of Chile uitgeroepen tot Winery of the Year!
Deze award is een bevestiging dat de filosofie van Emiliana, het maken van kwaliteitswijnen door uitsluitend biologische en biodynamische wijnbouw, de juiste route is naar succes.
Emiliana is the most distinguished winery of the year. That was the conclusion that Wines of Chile reached at the end of its exhaustive evaluation of the major participants in the Chilean wine industry in 2015.
Mario Pablo Silva, President of Wines of Chile, announced the news saying: “Since its foundation, Emiliana has been a pioneer in this country and has made tremendous contributions to sustainability and the production of wine made with organic grapes … it’s commitment and passion have made it an example to follow, in Chile and around the world.”
“We are very happy to receive this award, which confirms that it is possible to produce high quality wines using organic and biodynamic agriculture,” said Christián Rodriguez, the winery’s General Manager.
Wines of Chile has more than 90 member wineries, which lends special importance to this award because it comes from the Emiliana’s peers in the national wine industry. Wines of Chile’s evaluation criteria is ample and considers export figures, international awards earned, participation in industry activities, and especially, standing out in a very important way in some aspect.
Emiliana is currently the world’s largest organic winery, with more than 800 hectares of certified organic vineyards in Chile’s best wine regions and closes the year with 580,000 cases of organic wines exported to more than 60 countries.
