Since 1874, in the heart of the Maipo valley, Viña Tarapacá has been crafting unique wines of outstanding quality. These estate bottled wines earned their first award in the US in 1876, and have been obtaining awards ever since.
Receiving honors were the 2011 Gran Reserva Etiqueta Negra Cabernet Sauvignon, and the 2012 Gran Reserva Carménère, both products of the fertile Maipo Valley.
The Concours Mondial de Bruxelles celebrated its 20th year with this edition, and after rotating through various winemaking communities worldwide, returned to settle in the Belgian capital, its city of origin, receiving more than 8.000 samples from 41 countries.
The select panel of judges of this competition was composed of more than 300 specialists, among them sommeliers, buyers, importers, wine journalists and writers of various nationalities.
The contest has, through its history, established itself as a benchmark in international wine competitions, earning renown as “the world championship of tasting.” It is greatly respected by professionals and consumers worldwide for its tireless search for quality wines and for revealing the industry’s latest trends.
The medals received in this competition represent a new tribute to the traditional “Gran Reserva de Chile” family from Viña Tarapacá, which during its existence has achieved an excellent position in the domestic market as well as internationally.
