Zambartas Wineries received three awards at the esteemed Thessaloniki International Wine Competition. Lefkada-Shiraz 2013, Zambartas Marhatheftiko 2014 and Zambartas Rosé 2015 were awarded with a gold medal and two silver medals respectively. This is the third consecutive year that Zambartas Wineries are recognized in this competition, while their wines have been also awarded in other prestigious international competitions such as the Decanter World Wine Awards.
The 16th Thessaloniki International Wine Competition took place on February 24th to 26th in Thessaloniki, Greece. A total of 35 tasters, oenologists, sommeliers and journalists from Greece and abroad tasted 647 samples of wines and spirits from around the world during a 3-day tasting. The competition is organised on an annual basis by the Wine Producers Association of Northern Greece and attracts a big amount of participations from wine and spirits producers, giving strong evidence that is has become a major institution among the wine and spirits sector.
The winemaker Marcos Zambartas adds: “It is always a nice feeling to see team effort being recognised and rewarded. The cooperating vinegrowers and all the colleagues have worked hard for these awards and I thank them. It is worth mentioning that Cyprus won a significant number of medals with wines at very competitive prices”.
Zambartas produces 75,000 bottles of wine on a yearly basis, which are distributed mainly by La Maison Du Vin (Nicosia) and Bottles Wine Shop (Limassol) and are available at wine shops all over the country. For further information on the winery please visit www.zambartaswineries.com
