Segura Viudas Brut Reserva, Gold Medal in the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles
- Segura Viudas gained a total of three medals, also picking up silver for Segura Viudas Brut Rosé and Organic Brut
- 8,500 wines from 46 worldwide producers took part in this prestigious international competition
Three Cavas from the Penedes producer Segura Viudas were awarded medals at the prestigious Concours Mondial de Bruxelles, which was held in the Czech Republic. Segura Viudas Brut Reserva Cava picked up a gold medal while Segura Viudas Brut Rosé pink Cava and the Segura Viudas Organic Brut Cava each picked up a silver medal.
These new endorsements demonstrate the high quality of the Cavas made in our celler, which evolves all its activities with a profound respect for its roots, the environment and overall quality. The gold medal winner Segura Viudas Brut Reserva is made from hand harvested grapes, brought to the winery in 25 kilo capacity boxes to avoid damage to the grapes’ integrity. Segura Viudas Brut Reserva spends a minimum of 15 months in bottle ageing.
For its part, Segura Viudas Brut Rosé pink Cava is made from 90% Trepat, a grape variety which has its origins in the Conca de Barberà region, and is not widely grown. At Segura Viudas we were a pioneer winery in the recovery of this varietal. The final prize-winning Cava was Segura Viudas Organic Brut, which has been created in perfect harmony and faithfulness to the responsibility of the Bodega for environmental issues and for its hundred year agricultural tradition.
This year’s Concours Mondial de Bruxelles was held in Brno, in the Czech Republic, and was graced by 8,500 still and sparkling wines from 46 wine producing countries from around the world. From those 8,500 participating products, 2,520 won medals. In the current climate dominated by COVID – 19, the judges tasted over three days under very strict health and safety conditions.
