XI Edition of the Manojo Awards
The first edition of the Manojo awards took place in 1996 with a tasting committee made up of 18 tasters who had to evaluate the 65 participating wines that came from 23 wineries of the Cooperatives of Castilla y León, since it was only a contest for the wines from this Spanish province.
Nowadays, wines from all over the Spanish territory participate and more than 500 wines are presented to the competition, the competition has grown in fame and prestige. In this year's edition, a total of 566 wines have competed in the XI Edition of the Manojo Awards. Only 45 wines made it to the final, and of these, 24 have received their well-deserved award.
A total of eight categories competed, Young Red Oak, Young White, Young Rosé, Young Red, Crianza Red, Reserve Red, Quality Cavas and Sparkling Wines, Semi-dry and sweet wines. For each of the eight categories, three Bunch of Gold Awards were awarded, the awards ceremony took place on June 9 at the Houses of the Treaty of Tordesillas. The Baco de Covitoro 2005 from the Covitoro cooperative won one of these awards and we highlight this wine because we had the opportunity to taste it.
There are several events and oenological competitions that take place in our country to determine its high quality, thanks to these competitions we can know some of the great Spanish wines.
