The 32nd edition of the gourmet wine guide ranks Sierra Cantabria wines as among the very best in Spain.
For yet another year the Guía Gourmet, now in its 32nd edition, hits the market as one of “the best and most complete manuals on Spanish wines.” According to those behind it, “the reliability and transparency of the GVG (guide) is based on its method of the blind tasting of all the wines reviewed and the consensus evaluations of the 23 members making up the Gourmet Group Tasting Committee.”
With over 4,300 wines tasted, those by Viñedos y Bodegas Sierra Cantabria once again stood at the top of the rankings, of special note being the 99 points garnered by Finca el Bosque 2014, the 98 attained by San Vicente 2013, Amancio 2013 and La Nieta 2014, and the 97 awarded to Victorino 2014.
In this way a total of 16 wines exceeded 90 points, gracing the top of the Guide’s rankings.

Wines that endure over time, fusing fruit, potency and structure with elegance, freshness and subtlety.
