The Vinos Cambronero, S.L. winery has again received further international recognition for its great work and significant commitment to organic quality in all its wines, with the recent attainment of four new gold medals.

Fuentealbilla, Spain, July 12, 2013 --( The latest edition of the prestigious France-based international wine guide, Gilbert & Gaillard 2014, has awarded four gold medals to four organic red wines which the Manchegan winery, situated in Fuentealbilla municipality in Albacete province, makes using natural methods.

The manager of the winery, Francisco Cambronero, has expressed his satisfaction given that it was the first time he had presented his wines to this prestigious guide, "and to have received four gold medals makes us proud, helps us to continue developing our organic grape project and strengthens our position in the markets," the Manchegan winemaker affirmed.

The Gilbert & Gaillard Wine Guide is an essential reference for lovers of fine wine. It offers a carefully selected range of wines (wines from different countries, organic wines, etc.) to guide and support those wishing to try good wines.

Additionally, not only is the Gilbert & Gaillard website an excellent wine tasting guide, but it is also a prestigious magazine which has prominent blogs dedicated to current events in the sector, with relevant web links to videos about wine. The Gilbert & Gaillard guide provides access to over 35,000 tasted wines.

The Vinos Cambronero winery only produces organic signature wines which are bottled under the Franchete and Finca Lastonar brand names. The exquisite wines are produced exclusively using organic grapes from the vine varieties of the family holding: Cabernet Sauvignon, Bobal, Tempranillo, Syrah, Petit Verdot and Alicante Bouschet.

The four gold medals were awarded to the following organic red wines:
Franchtete: Assemblage - 2011;
Franchtete Cabernet Sauvignon;
Franchtete Barrica - 2005;
and Finca Lastonar

These awards signify the recognition of a very good quality, intense wine with strong aromas. A wine that is medium to full-bodied and well-balanced, with good persistence. These wines undergo a special production process which also enables exceptional ageing.
