At Bodegas Arzuaga, we’re very proud to announce that, once again, three of our wines have scored more than 90 points on the Wine Enthusiast list. This time, it was the turn of La Planta (91 points), Gran Arzuaga (97 points) and Gran Reserva 2016 (96 points). But they’re not the first to receive such great scores, as we also recently told you about how Arzuaga Reserva 2018 (94 points), Amaya Arzuaga 2017 (95 points) and Arzuaga Gran Reserva 2015 (97 points) were given exceptional scores by this publication.
In addition, our Arzuaga Rosae won gold at the Mondial du Rosé and Guía Peñín awarded our Laderas del Norte a score of 91 points. All these recognitions vouch for the work we do at Bodegas Arzuaga. All of you who follow us on this blog or our social media and who enjoy uncorking one of our bottles are the most important thing to us, which is why we take close care of everything, right down to the last detail, when making our wines, always respecting all the character and personality that are the hallmarks of Bodegas Arzuaga. And these kinds of recognitions confirm to us that we’re on the right path.
But let’s get back to the great scores that our La Planta (91 points), Gran Arzuaga (97 points) and Gran Reserva 2016 (96 points) have been given by Wine Enthusiast. First, we’d like to tell you a little more about this American magazine that specialises in the world of wine, a publication that has become a benchmark over the years. Every year, professionals and wine lovers are guided by its scores, which are updated each season. The magazine has been rating wines since its first issue came out in New York in 1988, when it proposed to bring wine to the American public at large. To do this, around 10,000 wine reviews are published and scores are given out of a total of 100 points, in addition to the creation of different lists with the 100 best wines by origin, price and characteristics. It’s a fun and easy guide for learning about everything that’s going on in the wine industry. Wine Enthusiast has managed to garner over 800,000 readers worldwide, as well as position its reviews and articles as some of the most influential for consumers and wine industry professionals.
For all of these reasons, we’re very proud to be present in such a prestigious publication, which ranks our wines among the best of 2022.
