Lead by the sommelier Raúl Serrano, the team tasted 1,600 samples of wines sourced from all over the Spanish peninsular, from which they selected 365 to include in the guide. Only a mere 11 wines were awarded the «Magnífico» prize.
And it gives us great pride that our Rosa Ruiz 2017 was named the Best Young White Wine by this prestigious guide. We want to thank the Vivir el Vino group for the honour they have bestowed on us with this award, which reminds us of the pride that we feel for the heritage passed down from our founder Santiago Ruiz.
His daughter Rosa Ruiz, who inherited his love of the land and attention to detail, lends her name to this exceptional wine, the first wine produced that is different to Santiago Ruiz, and which bears a label loaded with significance and sentiment, expressing the union between father and daughter.
This limited edition wine is sourced from old Albariño vines trained in traditional pergolas located at the foot of the historic winery, where Rosa learnt the winery’s unique philosophy and love of the land from her father.
This prize serves to further deepen the responsibility that each member of the winery team feels in taking on the viticultural and vinicultural legacy of Santiago Ruiz, an inimitable and fundamental character in the story of wine production in the Rías Baixas.
Thanks to the entire Vivir el Vino team for this award.
