Maruxa Mencia triumphs at the International Wine Challenge

The 2021 International Wine Challenge results were celebrated on 30th June and key members of the Hatch Mansfield team were there to support a wine which has been gaining lots of attention this year. Hailing from Galicia’s unexplored soils, CVNE’s Virgen del Galir Maruxa Mencia 2019 was not only the IWC Great Value Red Under £15 but was also declared the overall IWC Great Value Champion Red 2021 at this special open-air event held at the Kia Oval in London.

Brand Manager Emily Reay commented “We are delighted to see CVNE’s Virgen del Galir Maruxa Mencia receive such a great accolade from IWC. Miguel Tienda Baena works alongside Jorge Navascués and the rest of the team to make sure this wine is a true expression of Galician Mencia. CVNE’s mission has always been to make the best wines possible with the resources nature gives, which we are thrilled to see recognised in this wine, helping to build the reputation that Valdeorras deserves.”
