Revista de Vinhos | “Best of the Year 2017”
Revista de Vinhos has already revealed the winners of the “Best of the Year 2017”. “In some cases the consistency, the balance, the experience, the career of several years are praised; in others, boldness, the will to change and to make different, the daring of a creation distinct from what exists, “explains the director of the publication, Nuno Pires. The ‘Oscars’ of wine and gastronomy were presented in a ceremony at the Oporto Customs building.
Francisco “Vito” Olazabal, from Quinta do Vale Meão, is the “Personality of the Year in Wine”; Luís Sottomayor, from Sogrape, is the “Winemaker of the Year”; Nuno Gonzalez, from Herdade da Malhadinha Nova, the “Winemaker of the Year”; Sérgio Marques, from Il Gallo d’Oro, two Michelin stars, the “Sommelier / Wine Director of the Year”; and Marcelo Lima, an entrepreneur and wine producer in the Douro and Vinhos Verdes regions, is the “Personality of the Year in Brazil”. One of the great ovations of the night was for the winner of the “Homage” award, attributed to Fernando Guedes, from Sogrape.
