FOR TWO CONSECUTIVE YEARS THE MADEIRA WINE COMPANY IS
PORTUGUESE WINE PRODUCER OF THE YEAR
Madeira Wine Company, world renowned for its Blandy’s Madeiras, has been awarded – for the second year running - the “Portuguese Wine Producer of the Year 2010” by the International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC).
The longest running wine competition in the world, the prestigious IWSC, only presents this award to companies and individuals that through their achievements make an outstanding contribution to their field and, as such, it is a highly regarded accolade.
In addition to the ‘Producer Of The Year’, Blandy’s 1985 Vintage Malmsey won the IWSC World Trophy for Fortified Wine. This builds on Blandy’s impressive track record over recent years during which several of its wines have invariably gained the top prizes.
