The Washington Post Reviews Valsotillo


The Washington Post
published last 28th of April a good review of Valsotillo Crianza 2004. The reviewer’s punctuation mark was two stars and a half (on a scale of 1 to 3) and described Valsotillo Crianza 2004 as a rich and complex wine, with berry flavours, dark colour and good tannins which give structure to the wine.

Other prestigious magazines in the United States, as Wine Spectator and Wine & Spirits, also published in april different reviews about our wines: Valsotillo Reserva 2004, Valsotillo Crianza 2005, Valsotillo Gran Reserva 1999 and Mesoneros de Castilla Tinto Roble.

Bodegas Ismael Arroyo exports the 40% of its production, and the USA  are our second main market abroad, after Germany. In 1999, 2001 and 2003 Wine Spectator magazine invited our winery to take part in the Critics Choice Awards.

Our present importer in the United States is Tradewinds, with which Bodegas Ismael Arroyo is working to expand its wines.
