Catena Zapata awarded 'World's Most Admired Wine Brand 2020'

Catena Zapata has been awarded the title of 'World's Most Admired Wine Brand 2020' by Drinks International Magazine.

The judging panel consisted of an international group of drinks buyers and wine experts, including wine professionals from 48 different countries. The survey was conducted in association with market research specialists at Wine Intelligence.

To determine the winner, the panel were asked to list the three wine brands they most admired, taking into consideration their quality, consumer awareness, packaging, and overall authenticity to their respective regions.

Catena Zapata is the first Argentinian winery to win the award. Founded in 1902, Catena are famed for their pioneering role in resurrecting the Malbec grape, and discovering extreme, high-altitude terroirs in the Andean foothills of Mendoza. Nicolas Catena Zapata is the only South American to have received both Decanter's Man of the Year Award, and Wine Spectator's Distinguished Service Award. The winery's Adrianna Vineyard also holds several 100-point wine ratings. 

Dr. Laura Catena, the winery's fourth generation and managing director, says: "This award for Catena Zapata, a first for an Argentinian winery, goes to all the great people who have worked at our family winery since 1902, to our region's beautiful vineyards, and to our fellow wine drinkers around the world."
