Here at Santiago Ruiz, we are celebrating. On the evening of the 21st February, as part of the Verema Experience Valencia, our colleague Carlos Buergo, Regional Director of Bodegas LAN, had the pleasure of accepting the Verema award 2018 for the "Best Spanish white wine" at Valencia's Las Arenas Hotel. An accolade that recognises the 2017 vintage of Santiago Ruiz as the best in its category, a category in which we competed with other great Spanish wines.


In his speech of thanks, Carlos said that despite Santiago Ruiz having a man's name, he wanted to dedicate this prize to the two women who make the wine possible: Luisa Freire, winemaker at Santiago Ruiz and Rosa Ruiz, daughter of Santiago Ruiz and winery ambassador.

After the prize-giving ceremony, a tasting entitled "Spain, land of white wines," was led by M. José Huertas, sommelier at Maxi Bao, and the president of Verema, Juan Such, in which our colleague Carlos presented and explained the characteristics of the 2016 vintage of Santiago Ruiz.

Verema, the largest Spanish-speaking online wine community, with more than 74,000 registered users, recognises Santiago Ruiz 2017 as the "Best white wine."

Finally, the day finished with a closing dinner in Valencia's Entrevins restaurant, where the guests could partner their dishes with this edition's winning wines.

Santiago Ruiz, the father of Albariño

Considered the "father of Albariño", Santiago Ruiz's family had been making their own wine to enjoy at home since 1860. After his retirement, Santiago Ruiz could at last dedicate himself to his true passion: wine. Convinced of the virtues of native varieties, he became the Rias Baixas's first ambassador, making its wines known all over the world. Santiago Ruiz is a faithful reflection of his spirit, a blend of varieties from our estate vineyards in O Rosal.

This recognition as the best white wine is in addition to other recent prizes, last July, it was awarded the D.O. Rías Baixas "Acio de Oro", a gold medal presented at the XXX Edition of the Vinos de Galicia tasting.
