Hécula 2014 has been awarded as WINE OF THE YEAR at the Irish Wine Show “Star Awards” 2016-2017 last 10th October in Dublin.
The Irish Wine Show “Star Awards” 2016-2017 Collection is a selection of wines especially chosen by wine experts in the NOffLA (National Off-Licence Association established in 1991 that represents independent specialist off-licences across Ireland) and independent wine writers.
More than 600 wines were submitted to the Star Award adjudication panel. Points were awarded on the basis of appearance, smell, taste and value for money criteria and the top three wines were selected as the best wines, from the key suppliers and awarded either a Gold, Silver or Bronze Star.
This awesome news arrives in the middle of the harvest of our local variety Monastrell, raw material for the new vintages of Castaño’s wines.
