Sogevinus - 2012 Best Fortified Wine Producer, in Aníbal Coutinho’s 'W' Awards
Throughout 2012, wine critic, oenologist and journalist Aníbal Coutinho monitored developments in the various Portuguese wine sectors and nominated his top 10 for 19 different categories. On January 20th he announced the 19 winners in a special online feature on his site, www.w-anibal.com.
"Sogevinus company holds several of the most historic Port brands, such as Cálem, Burmester and Kopke. The experience of many centuries in the art of blending has led to the creation of a wide range of Colheita Tawny Ports that justify this W award in 2012. Taste them at one of the company's visitor's centers, another project that has become strategic for Sogevinus. Congratulations to winemaker Pedro Sá and his team."
