|María Vargas: Best Winemaker of 2017|
María Vargas, considered for years as one of the best winemakers in the world, has been named Best Enologist of the Year 2017. Marqués de Murrieta, the first winery in Rioja and considered the Best Winery in the World, continues to be successful: in its highly anticipated Rioja 2017 Special Report, the prestigious critic Tim Atkin not only chose Vargas -enologist of Marqués de Murrieta for 20 years- as Best Winemaker of 2017, but also gives the winery another recognition: the Best White Wine of the Year, for Castillo Ygay Blanco Gran Reserva Especial 1986. Their Reserva Rioja continues as a top shelf-yet affordable-flagship that is the ultimate in consistency, especially considering the price point.
