Vinibuoni d’Italia and Mundus Vini

Varvaglione wins a double-header with two important prizes

September has started off with good news for Varvaglione 1921: two prestigious awards in the year of its 100th anniversary.

Papale Oro Primitivo di Manduria DOC 2019 received the coveted recognition of Le Corone from the guide Vinibuoni d’Italia 2022 and Salice Salentino DOC 2017 was selected by Mundus Vini during the Summer Tasting 2021.

Two important international prizes from Touring Club and Mundus Vini, awarding the Puglia winery significant recognition for quality and the work accomplished from the vineyard to the cellar.

The guide Vinibuoni d’Italia, published by Touring Club Italiano, selected only 904 labels from among thousands; Varvaglione 1921’s flagship wine, Papale Oro Primitivo di Manduria DOC 2019 vintage ranked among the finalists, along with the very few (only 31) award-winning wines from Puglia.

Primitivo di Manduria continues to be the leading native grape variety for the Varvaglione family in a region that has made grape-growing and wine-making one of its strengths in a sustainable economy.

«The prizes are an occasion for a broader reflection,” Marzia Varvaglione. “They confirm that the winery is on the right track, offering our clients a quality product that, under the watchful and expert eye of my father and his team, also guarantees quality in the process. It is also gratifying that our wines achieve the approval of the guides, an important reference points for all winelovers.»
