Wine Marketing Award
The salutation prize worked with the cooperative winery Dom Brial de Baïxas (66) in the Sang Mêlé vintage. This cuvee assembles the 7 varieties of typical Southwest and Eastern Pyrenees.
Sang Mêlé is the result of a long and conscientious work and a common passion. After 2 years of assembly tests, Vinovalie and Dom Brial present a complex and balanced wine with a unique flavor. It is a blend of the freshness of South West structured wines and the warmth of concentrated Catalan wines.
