In the new version of these annual awards, which is held by the British magazine: The Drinks Business and acknowledges progress made in terms of sustainability for the global alcohol industry, the wine group placed first in the “Amorim Sustainability Award” category.

This important category was created with the AmorimGroup, a multinational Portuguese company which leads in cork production. Its purpose is to recognize and issue awards for efforts made by the company over the past three years –with a special focus on the past 12 months- with regards to the efficiency and effectiveness of sustainable practices in the industry.
