WBV 2019 – World’s Best Vineyards

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE                                                                                                          Argentina’s Zuccardi Valle de Uco has been named the World’s Best Vineyards by a prestigious voting academy from around the globe. A visit to this unique winery is a must.

The visitor centre, which showcases the stunning views of the vineyards and mountains, is open Wednesdays to Sundays, while winery tours and tastings may be reserved throughout the day.

The Piedra Infinita Cocina restaurant, meanwhile, offers a refined four-course seasonal menu as well as recommended wines of pairing.

The aim of the World’s Best Vineyards list is to raise the profile of wine tourism, and encourage visitors from all over the world to explore the world’s best wineries and vineyards.

The award ceremony

The Mendoza based winner, founded in 1963, beat competition from around the world to be rated number one. The top ten saw a particularly strong showing from South America; two wineries from Argentina, two from Chile and one from Uruguay. In terms of success by country, Chile triumphed overall with eight listings amongst the top 50, beating Old World stalwart France with seven listings.

In total, 17 countries were represented, including classic wine producing countries as well as emerging wine producing countries such as the UK (Ridgeview – 36th), Lebanon (Chateau Heritage – 49th), and Canada (Mission Hill Winery – 50th).

While Zuccardi won the continent trophy South America, the other continent trophy winners are Rioja’s López de Heredia Vina Tondonia for Europe (3rd place), Rippon from New Zealand for the Australasia Continent Trophy (8th place), Robert Mondavi Winery for the North America Trophy (12th place), Vergelegen Wine Estate in Africa (34th place), and Lebanon’s Chateau Heritage for Middle East Asia (49th).

José Alberto Zuccardi, Managing Director of Zuccardi Valle de Uco, number one on the list, commented: “It’s a great surprise and a great pleasure for us to have the recognition as the World’s Best Vineyard 2019. As a family, we put a lot of passion in what we do; there are three generations of us all working together at the winery.

Our objective is to give consumers the full experience from the Uco Valley, through the wine, the ingredients in our restaurant which is sourced locally, and even the earth, as we use local concrete for the winery. It’s all about the terroir. Everything we do is an expression of Argentina, and specifically an expression of Uco Valley.

Winner

Such recognition makes me absolutely thrilled, and pushes us to continue our efforts. I can’t wait to celebrate at home!”
