Luigi Bosca, Navarro Correas, Rutini Wines and Zuccardi were the great winners, within diverse categories, of the contest held at the hotel. See in this article all the Trophy-winning wines.

From September 10 to 14, 2012, Park Hyatt Mendoza hosted the contest “Park Hyatt Mendoza Wine Challenge 2012″. In this opportunity, a jury comprising national and international professionals selected the new wines to be included in the wine list of Bistró M, the hotel’s major restaurant.

The judges blindly tasted over 600 labels and selected 30% of them to be incorporated in the restaurant’s wine list. Moreover, they chose the contest’s best exponents, and the winners were:

Best white wine: Gala III, of Bodega Luigi Bosca

Best red wine: Navarro Correas Selección del Enólogo Blend II, of Bodega Navarro Correas

Best sparkling wine:  Trumpeter Extra Brut, of Bodega Rutini Wines

The best wine in the contest: Zuccardi Zeta, of Bodega Familia Zuccardi

The methodology

The event boasted the participation of eight international and 20 national judges per day. The assessment was carried out through blind tastings and the samples were divided by variety and price ranges. There were four tables, with a president each (one of the international experts). Each of these teams had to choose the top 5 or 10 in each category. Then they had to arrive at a consensus and select the best wines. The samples were rated, ranging from 60 to 100 points.
