International wine award

Adega do Cantor winery has announced that their Vida Nova Rosé 2009 wine has won a MUNDUSvini gold medal for Great International Wine.

The wine was judged by more than 270 jury members and was competing against wines from 49 submitting countries at the MUNDUSvini international wine festival held in Germany, the largest of its kind in the world.

Max Birch of Adega do Cantor, said: “It is a dream come true. We never thought that a small producer from the Algarve could go out and gain such fantastic recognition competing with world class wine growing countries.”

He added: “A Gold medal for our Rosé has given us the reassurance that we are on the right track in terms of producing the best wine this region has to offer and incentive for us to continuously strive to aim higher with every vintage.”
