Camel Valley do it again winning top Rose at the Bollecini Del Mondo Awards
For the second successive year Camel Valley Vineyard's sparkling rosé has won the 'Best Sparkling Rosé in the World’ trophy at the Bollecine del Mondo awards held on 27th January. Camel Valley beat off stiff competition from many world famous Champagne Grandes Marques, including Bollinger. As well as finishing first in the sparkling rosé class the wine also came second in the overall competition of the world's top 200 sparkling wines, just 3 points behind the winning Ayala Brut Majeur from Champagne with 895 points, but ahead of the world renowned Mumm and Bolly.
Chairman of Judges was Tom Stevenson, author of Christie's World Encyclopaedia of Champagne and Sparkling Wine. A spokesperson for Camel Valley said ‘Winning last year with the 2008 vintage was beyond our wildest dreams, but to repeat it with the 2009 and to have Tom Stevenson as Chair of judges is stunning’.
