Twenty three wines received the Great Gold Medal; 190 for the Gold Bacchus and 260 for the Silver.

The Bacchus competition is the only one held in Spain endorsed by the World Federation of Major International Wine and Spirits Competitions (VINOFED). It is recognized by the International Organization of La Viña (OIV) and the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, Food and Environment.

Yuntero Rosado 2018, Bacchus de Oro
Bodegas Yuntero's rosé is made 100% from the Tempranillo grape variety. It has an attractive and intense raspberry red color and on the palate it stands out for its balance and complexity. It has great structure and persistence and gives off aromas of strawberries and raspberries.

Awarded with a Bacchus de Oro, it has also just been awarded the 'Awards for the Quality of Bottled and Varietal Wines with Designation of Origin La Macha' awarded by the DO La Mancha Regulatory Council.

Yuntero Macabeo 2018, Silver Bacchus
It is a blend of the Macabeo (85%) and Sauvignon Blanc (15%) grape varieties. The mixture of these two grapes gives it a very interesting aromatic complexity, merging the floral aromas with the fruity ones. The small contribution of the Sauvignon Blanc grape gives it a slightly sweet profile. It has a pale steely yellow color with greenish tones, clean, crystalline and bright. With Designation of Origin La Mancha it is intense, frank and cheerful, demonstrating great harmony between its components, and with a long persistence on the palate.
