Gold medal award for Silves wine

Two producers integrated in the Silves wine group ‘Vinhos de Silves’ were awarded with the ‘Grande Medalha de Ouro’ distinction at the Algarve’s Wine Competition, which took place on August 17 at Convento de S. José in Lagoa.

Marquês dos Vales – Grace-Viognier 2012, from Quinta dos Vales, and Syrah – Terraços 2011, from Quinta do Francês, were the prized labels at the sixth edition of ‘Concurso de Vinhos do Algarve’, included in the FATACIL fair festivities.  

‘Vinhos de Silves’ was launched in 2009 by the municipal authority of Silves and brings together seven local wine producers to promote their wines.
