Fuenteseca, gold medal in the category of young red wine. Bercial Ladera Los Cantos, gold medal in the category of red wine with more than 12 months in oak barrels. Bercial Blanco Selección, gold medal in the category of oaked white wine. These were our award-winning wines in the 7th FereVin Wine Competition, with a single prize in each category. In addition, we have been the most awarded winery, obtaining three of the 10 prizes awarded by the jury.
These prizes are awarded by FereVin, which is the Requena Wine Fair and, therefore, the participating wineries are all from the region. During two days, the tasting committee has evaluated all the wines presented and the final result has been very positive for our wines, once again this year.
The awards went to two very different wine profiles from those we make in Sierra Norte. Fuenteseca is our most affordable young wine, and Bercial, both white and red, are our premium wines, the most select, plot wines whose grapes are the best from our vineyards. Maintaining a balance in the quality and personality of the wines, whatever their price level or exclusivity, is something complicated, but at Sierra Norte we try to do it year after year. Seeing the result reflected in the competitions, from the hand of expert tasters, is really satisfying.
