08.04.2019 Thumbs up from James Suckling: 90 points for our Ipsis Selecció Crianza.

We were delighted this year to receive recognition for all 6 of our DO Tarragona Ipsis wines from James Suckling during his 2018 Spanish Wine Tasting, including 90 points for our crianza Ipsis Selecció 2014. The Suckling team tasted around 2600 wines from all over Spain over a period of 2 weeks and reports, with particular reference to the reds, an exciting tasting with overall consistency and dependability in the wines. He also emphasizes the importance now being given in Spain to balance and red wines focusing on “pure fruit with a pronounced but not dominant oak character from barrel aging” and praises terroir-specific wines such as our Ipsis wines from DO Tarragona.

The DO Tarragona was established around 1945 in order to protect the delicate liqueur wines for which the region was famous – the Tarragona Clásicos. Tarragona’s dry and semi-sweet wines were subsequently included in the DO which now confers its seal of quality on more than a hundred different wines. The city of Tarragona is a historical treasure trove when it comes to wine. In the splendor of the Roman Empire, Tarragona produced many of the wines that were most prized by people throughout the Empire.  The wine was exported in ceramic and clay amphoras, to places as far off and important as Rome – centre of the Empire. The excellent quality of Tarragona’s wine has been maintained to this day through careful attention to the vines, an excellent climate and general good practice.

Thank you James Suckling for your seal of approval and support in bringing our wines and the many great, exciting and unique wines of Spain to the attention of the world!

Vermouth Padró & Co.’s very own master bartender Jordi Vizcarro was on the stand preparing vermouth cocktails so it was the ideal time to try one of our new suggestions: the Caledonia Beach, made with Blanco Reserva and the Tarraco Sunset, made with Dorado Amargo Suave.

It was a real pleasure to share moments throughout the weekend with all those who stopped by at our stand. Spending time together with our customers in this way is an important part of our day-to-day.

  21.04.2017 For Garnatxa lovers. Our POESIA brand is proud to present two new wines.

At Vins Padró the development of new wines is one of our favourite activities and we are rarely without ideas and products in the pipeline. It is four years since we launched our POESIA “family” and so this spring we are happy to announce the arrival of  two new “family members”. A white and a red Garnatxa.

These two wines are a splendid additional touch to this DO Catalunya brand, consisting up until now of a red Crianza and three young wines, a red, a white and a rosé.

WHITE GARNATXA (12.5% vol)

VINIFICATION: The grapes are harvested in the early morning and pressed immediately. The cloudy must is then kept on the lees and cooled to approximately 10ºC for three days to prevent fermentation. It is then ltered thoroughly and fermented at a temperature of approxi- mately 19ºC with repeated regular stirring so that it remains cloudy with some of its fermented yeast for a further two months to allow gradual enriching and broadness on the palate.

TASTING NOTE: Golden-white with greenish hues. Very crisp and refreshing. Aromas of tropical fruits on the nose, pineapple and mango together with zesty notes and perhaps a little grapefruit. smooth and creamy in the mouth. Memories of fruits such as peach.

PAIRING SUGGESTIONS: Japanese food, risottos, salted sh, foie de canard and goat’s cheese.


RED GARNATXA (13% vol)

VINIFICATION: Special 5-day long maceration of the must and grapes at 25ºC. Halfway through the alcoholic fermentation, we separate the skins from the must and fermentation of the now clear must is completed at low temperature (18ºC).
Vini cation is focused on retaining the young character of the wine, bringing out the fruit, spices and oral notes characteristic of the Red Garnatxa grape.

TASTING NOTE: Bright plum red characteristic of the Garnatxa grape with well-de ned aromas of summer fruits such as blackberries enveloped in very fragrant oral memories. Refreshingly light sensations in the mouth making this wine an excellent red for the summer.

PAIRING SUGGESTIONS: Meat paellas, pasta, tapas, grilled vegetables, paté platters, beef carpaccio, roast beef and melba toast amb tomàquet.

Six local products from the market stalls and six Catalunya apellation wines, among them Vins Padró’s EL VERS, were tasted at the event. Each wine was accompanied by a short comic strip inspired by the world of wine and signed by well-known and talented local authors.

15.07.2015 "El Vers", un nuevo D.O. Catalunya de Padró

Tarragona winery Vins Padró has added a new range of D.O. Catalunya wines to its catalogue.

The new brand, El Vers is the result of the Padró team’s steadfast and heartfelt mission to produce four wines embodying the strength and character of the winery’s vineyards.

A four-verse stanza to accompany and reflect the character of the vines and give expression to a veritable passion for wine.

El Vers Crianza (Tempranillo - Merlot)
The must is in full contact with the grape skins during the fermentation phase and the wine is then aged in oak barrels for a period of 6 to 9 months.
Warm aromas of ripe summer fruits, blended with vanilla and cinnamon fragances.
Wild fruit flavours mixed with hints of cocoa, coffee and oak lactones.

El Vers Yound Red (Tempranillo - Merlot)
Fermentation is carried out in contact with the grape skins for approximately one week.
This maceration is short but very intense in order to extract good colour and obtain a powerful yet pleasant structure.
Aromas of ripe fruits such as raspberries and currants. The palate is broad and persistent with fruity notes and spices.

El Vers White (Macabeo, Muscat and Xarello)
Each varietal is fermented separately in specific individual fermenting conditions thus enhancing the structure in the mouth of the Xarello and the aromatic properties of the Macabeo and Muscat.
Fruity notes are enhanced by nuances of citrus fruits. A smooth wine, balanced by a nice acid structure

El Vers Rosé (Tempranillo - Merlot)
Intense and very brief maceration of the must with the grape skins. Fermentation is specifically designed to obtain a wine with an enhanced aromatic and fruity character.
Intense aroma of red fruits such as strawberries and cherries. A soft and sweet palate with a balanced acidity that gives the wine a delightful freshness.

25.05.2015 Decanter accolades for Ipsis Whites

It’s an especially happy year for Ipsis whites with recent recognition from Decanter World Wine Awards 2015 for both wines submitted. Our 2014 Chardonnay and our new wine, Mas d’Infants – an inviting and well-balanced Muscat/Chardonnay/Xarello coupage and brand new member of the Ipsis family both received Bronze awards in the competition.

We are proud to see that our Chardonnay – which also received full marks for price/quality ratio (5/5 stars) in this year’s Guía Peñin, is also coming into its own alongside our regular award-winner Ipsis Crianza. For those looking for a really good un-oaked Chardonnay, unrivalled in value for money, this is probably a good year to try what Ipsis has to offer – even though we say so ourselves!

  25.05.2015 Vins Padró at Fenavin 2015 12-14th May

We were down in Ciudad Real again this year at Fenavin - Spain’s largest annual wine fair - to show off the brand new additions to our Myrrah Vermouths. A very tempting white, perfect for summer and complex but silkily smooth Reserva to accompany our much-loved Myrrah Rojo.

We also brought along our 2014 DO Catalunya baby, Poesía, already taking leaps and bounds both at home and abroad and the new member of our Ipsis family Mas d’Infants, a coupage of three white grapes grown locally: Muscat, Chardonnay and Xarello.

The trade show is one of our favourites for catching up with current importers and meeting new potential buyers but it’s also a great opportunity for all to update on what’s happening in Spain.

  30.07.2010 Vins Padró involved in 13th Wines and Cavas of Alt Camp Promotional Week

The Vins Padró winery was represented at the wine pairings evening for restaurateurs and wine professionals of the D.O. Tarragona region, held at the Hotel Class in Valls.

The wine presented at the occasion by Vins Padró was their red Ipsis Negre Jove Merlot 2009, which chef Àngel Solé of the restaurant El Tast de l'Àngel paired with his bacon crunch with courgette.

The aim of the event is to rediscover and showcase the quality of some of the most representative and highly valued wines of the Alt Camp district by bringing together the worlds of oenology and gastronomy.

With this idea in mind the chef suggests a number of original dishes to be paired with local wines and cavas.

The wine pairing evening forms part of the programme of events marking the 13th Wines and Cavas of Alt Camp Promotional Week, which comes to an end next week.

  07.07.2010 Silver Medal for Ipsis

The Vins Padró 2007 vintage, representing the Tarragona Designation of Origin, was awarded the honour at the leading Canadian Wine Tasting.

The international jury of the Sélections Mondiales des Vins gave the Vins Padró Ipsis Crianza 2007 a score of 83.17, enough to earn it a Silver Medal.

The diploma in recognition of the wine's prowess was handed out at the 17th edition of the Sélections Mondiales des Vins awards, held from 1 to 6 June in the Canadian city of Quebec. The event is viewed as one of the most significant wine fairs in the world and forms part of VinoFed, the Worldwide Federation of Major International Wines and Spirits Competitions.

The Sélections Mondiales is organised in accordance with the robust standards of objectivity imposed by the international competition rules of the OIV, VinoFed and UIOE. The samples presented are assessed by international juries made up of members of established ability, integrity and independence.

At this year's edition the Vins Padró Ipsis Crianza 2007 received a Silver Medal, competing alongside a further 1789 products from 600 different makers in 32 countries.

The award goes hand-in-hand with those previously garnered by the Ipsis Crianza 2005: two Gold Medals, at the Challenge International des Vins in Bordeaux and at Canada's Sélections Mondials des Vins; a Silver Medal in the Best Spanish Wines category at MUNDUSvini in Germany, and a 91-point rating awarded by the Guía Peñín.

"We were looking to create a vintage which would serve as our establishment's image and hallmark on international markets. And so we chose a coupage featuring two varieties, our local Tempranillo and the imported Merlot. We use a number of different types of barrel to shape its character, resulting in a distinctive wine spanning a spectrum of aromatic registers. The Silver Medal we have just won is the first international honour for the 2007 vintage, which we only recently released onto the market," explains Montse Padró, Director of External Relations at Vins Padró.
