Published : 10/01/2021 - Categories : Best of the year
Casa de Santar - with more than 200 years of history, and CABRIZ - the best selling Dão brand in the world, are icons of this wine region. The quality of their wines has been consistently recognised in numerous national and international competitions.
The distinctions now awarded in the XII "Os Melhores Vinhos do Dão" Competition are further proof of the excellence of Casa de Santar and CABRIZ wines, having been distinguished among 160 wines in the competition, in four categories: blended white wines, blended red wines, varietal wines and sparkling wines.
The Casa de Santar Vinha dos Amores Espumante Encruzado 2013 was the best wine in the competition in the sparkling category, receiving a Platinum medal. The Casa de Santar Reserva Tinto 2015 and the Casa de Santar Branco 2019 were awarded with the Gold medal.
Casa de Santar is historically linked to wine production. Founded at the end of the 18th century, is one of the most iconic wineries in Dão, due to its history, size and the reputation of its wines. The wines of this noble house are recognised for their tradition, authenticity and nobility, reasons that make this Dão brand so special.
In the CABRIZ brand - which offers a wide portfolio, seeking to respond to all consumer segments and moments - the award winners were the CABRIZ Reserva Encruzado 2019 (Gold medal) and the CABRIZ Colheita Selecionada Rosé 2020 (Silver medal).
