On September 8th, the 1st edition of the contest VINORESTO took place at Montreal. An occasion during which 18 restaurant owners and sommeliers of the Montreal region chose the wines most likely to satisfy the Canadian consumer.
A competition greatly appreciated by the professionals attending the event and for which we are pleased to announce the winners.
The APVSA’s team want to congratulate Romain Barreau from Domaine Barreau, champion of the “Red Wine” category with his Gaillac 2014 “Rouge Tradition”, and José Felix Arriezu from Arriezu Vineyards, winner in the “White Wine” category with his 2014 organic “Verdejo D.O. Rueda”.
The “Rouge Tradition” 2014 from the Domaine Barreau has obtained the highest score in the “Blind Tasting” category which assessed the quality of the product according with criteria’s of “color”, “nose” and “in mouth”. While in the second part of the tasting, that assessed the physical characteristics of the wine bottle, the wine of Romain Barreau came in second place.
The “Verdejo D.O. Rueda” 2014 of J.F. Arriezu has proved to be the most equilibrated wine since it’s the only wine presented in the “White Wine” category to have obtained the highest notes in the 2 parts of the contest.
Congratulations to our two members for their victory and the private order they have won!
