The Bacchus awards
The Bacchus international competition is one of the most important wine competitions in the world and is organised by the Spanish Wine Tasting Union. The event brings together international expert wine tasters, specialised journalists, sommeliers, oenologists, masters of wine and masters of sommelier, who are in charge of evaluating and recognizing the quality of the wines.
Bacchus is the only international wine competition in Spain which belongs to VINOFED, the federation which makes up the most renowned competitions worldwide. In addition it is recognized by the International Organization of Vine and Wine (OIV) and Spain’s Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment (MAGRAMA). These prestigious bodies confirm Bacchus as a global benchmark.
The continuous recognition achieved by Bodegas Luzón’s products substantiates the effort the company makes to conquer consumers’ tastes. The company is one of the largest producers of wine from the Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) Jumilla and its wines are positioning themselves in the market for their careful elaboration.
