La Seca, July 7, 2020.- The wines from Bodega Cuatro Rayas have been awarded again in the benchmark young wine competition in Spain, the Baco Awards, where the cooperative located in the so-called cradle of Verdejo, the Valladolid town of La Seca, has revalidated its leadership in the production of wine with the autochthonous variety, receiving a gold and a silver medal.
Cuatro Rayas Centennial Vineyards , which has taken the gold, stands out for being a Verdejo made from grapes from vineyards in glass of sandy soils, with an age between 80 and 100 years. Intense on the nose, with floral notes, white flowers, acacia, on a background of ripe fruit. Unctuous on the palate, creamy and enveloping on the palate.
Green & Social Verdejo , with silver, is the most recent production of the cooperative, a wine that emphasizes viticultural and social sustainability as a spearhead in a market where the consumer is becoming much more demanding every day. Green & Social Verdejo stands out for valuing environmental and human criteria both in the field and in its preparation, in packaging and even distribution. It is a true reflection of a winery that supports 383 families in rural areas, mostly inhabitants of 30 towns between the provinces of Valladolid and Segovia and that works to effectively promote equality between women and men in rural areas. . It is a white wine from organic farming and certified vegan winemaking. The paper in its box is recycled and the labeling has FSC certified papers. The glass, in addition to being recycled, is light to reduce emissions in its transport. The capsule is aluminum and is free of the usual plastics so it is 100% recyclable. The cap comes from sugar cane with a reduced carbon footprint.
