Alejandro Vigil was recognized as Winemaker of the year by Tim Atkin
The outstanding winemaker Alejandro Vigil added a new and outstanding medal for his career. He was chosen as the “Winemaker of the Year” for the Special Report Argentina 2019 of wine critic Tim Atkin.
Atkin was in Argentina during the month of February this year, when he tasted 1586 wines made in our country. Based on this experience, the English critic makes an important report, which is one of the most prominent in the world. The wines tasted in each region are qualified and special mentions are also made for the professionals of the environment. The highest award given is that of “Winemaker of the Year”, which was received by Vigil. In addition, a wine made by Alejandro (Catena Zapata – Adrianna Vineyard White Bones Chardonnay 2017) obtained 98 points and was the best rated wine in the report.
“The recognition of Tim Atkin is highly valued for us. Especially since he has been visiting Argentina for 20 years now and therefore knows our areas perfectly. For me
having received this award was a big surprise and it brought me great joy. On the other hand, it seems to me to be a recognition of the way we work in Mendoza today. Today the terroir is above people. While this is a personalized award and it excites me, I think it is for a whole work group. Which comes thinking and working as a result of viticulture and understanding the differences according to climate and soil. It is a deep job ”
– ALEJANDRO VIGIL
And he adds: “The first thing I just thought about was the people around me. Mainly my family and the friends who are always close, who are the ones who support and push me. Also in the Catena family, that has been totally generous with me. With them I have been able to develop professionally and personally. Especially because of a very close bond with Doctor Nicolás Catena, a person with whom I speak and daily review my life.
A new achievement of Vigil that from here we celebrate. Santé!
