Following Jay Miller's visit to the Penedès earlier this year, the definitive list of scores for 2011 has just been published in Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. 19 wines from 8 different producers from the Denominació d'Origen Penedès were awarded scores of over 90 points. See the full list below:
The building “Neapolis” will host a new exhibition of gastronomy and wine, Called “Vineyard & Tasting” addressed to professional visitors with an open day for the general public. The fair will give support to the quality and representativity of the products of the Catalan region: wines, cheeses, oils, honey, sausages, chocolate, ready ... looking to promote local products.
This years vintage has been clearly marked by the weather. The rain fallen on the 20th August forced an early start to the vintage, making the selection of grapes in the vineyard key to the quality of the wines of the D.O. Penedès this year. The work of the growers means that we can assert that the raw materials - the grapes - brought into the cellars this year has been of very good quality.
