The importance of medals



For us, knowing that consumers enjoy our wines and repeat the experience over and over again is the best reward. But as grape growers and producers, earning good scores and winning medals at major international wine competitions is also a source of great satisfaction.

After months of work in the vineyards and in the cellar. After focusing all our attention on quality. After thinking carefully about which wines will appeal to people all over the world and about the way in which we will convey our brands' values... After all this, the opinion of juries and critics provides confirmation and encouragement. Sometimes we expect more, sometimes we are surprised because we didn't expect so much, but we are always grateful to everyone who takes the time to taste what we make and appreciates our contribution to the wonderful world of wine.
Because a medal or a score is just that: an opportunity to connect with professionals and, through their opinions, with the wider global market.
We would like to share some of Muriel Wines' excellent results obtained recently.
