Bodegas Beronia, number one Rioja brand from the Rioja Alta, has been awarded Spanish Wine Producer of the Year at the International Wine and Spirits Competition 2018.


Ollauri, La Rioja, November 2018 – Beronia, one of Rioja’s leading premium wine brands, has won the coveted IWSC Trophy for Spanish Wine Producer of the Year 2018.


Beronia was awarded the trophy for its outstanding performance in the competition this year having beaten off all other competitors in the category. Beronia consistently scored the highest marks in every tasting and was considered, by the judges, to demonstrate “quality of the highest order” across the range of wines submitted from Spain this year.


Winning an IWSC trophy isn’t easy, but that’s what makes the medal so well respected among trade and consumers alike. The competition’s panels of handpicked industry experts judge entries over seven months of the year to ensure a considered approach to tasting is adhered to for each and every product.



Beronia’s Chief winemaker Matías said, “This is an amazing achievement. We are over the moon! It’s all thanks to our hard work in the vineyard and the winery where we strive to ensure we use the most sustainable practices to make the very best quality wines. Being Spanish Producer of the Year 2018 will only help to cement our position as one of Rioja’s most popular brands.”



The IWSC is acknowledged by the international drinks trade for setting the international benchmark for quality and remaining unique in the crowded world of drinks competitions with dedicated tasting premises, a permanent onsite cellar and over 400 global experts judging products for seven months of the year.
