Bodegas Barbadillo is thrilled to announce that their Manzanilla Pastora has been awarded the Gold Medal at the prestigious Decanter World Wine Awards 2023. This recognition reaffirms Bodegas Barbadillo’s commitment to excellence and quality in producing exceptional wines. The Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA), founded by the British magazine Decanter and its mentor, Steven Spurrier, is widely regarded as the world’s largest and most important wine competition. In its 20th edition held in England, participating wines were evaluated by professional panels composed of experts from each wine region around the world.
The Manzanilla Pastora stood out among a wide selection of wines from around the world and achieved the Gold Medal in its respective category. This distinction represents the highest recognition for the best wines in their category at the Decanter World Wine Awards. The Manzanilla Pastora is a wine with a long biological aging process, rooted in the soleras of Solear, one of Bodegas Barbadillo’s emblematic wineries. Its aging takes place in the La Pastora cellar, strategically located near the river in the heart of Sanlúcar de Barrameda, a region ideal for biological aging.
The success of the Manzanilla Pastora at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2023 is a testament to the dedication and expertise of Bodegas Barbadillo’s winemaking team, as well as the unmatched quality of the wines produced by the winery. “We are delighted that our Manzanilla Pastora has been recognized with the Gold Medal at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2023,” said the spokesperson of Bodegas Barbadillo. “This award is a testament to the hard work and dedication that our team has put into producing wines of exceptional quality. We are pleased to share our passion for wine with enthusiasts around the world.”
The Gold Medal at the Decanter World Wine Awards is a significant achievement for Bodegas Barbadillo, further solidifying its reputation as one of the leading wineries in the Sanlúcar de Barrameda region.
