For the last seven years Forvm vinager from Puig i Roca in Vendrell, Penedès has had the distinction of being present at the banquet of the Nobel Prize giving. According to Enric Puig the secret is the quality of the raw material, a good wine and a very slow preparation. It takes about two or three months to produce the vinager which then remains in oak barrels. Each year they bottle 15% of the contents of each barrel which means ageing averages 7 to 8 years. Puig i Roca are also very well known for their “Agustus” Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay wines, excellent quality wines at accessible prices. This year their Chardonnay triumphed in New York at a benefit supper for the T.J. Martell Foundation. Organised by founder of the Chrysalis label, Terry Ellis, the Wine and Music Lovers Dinner was celebrated at the Pratt Mansions. A total of ten wines and a brandy were served and Puig i Roca have the distinction of being the first Spanish wine to be included in this event. Among the guests were the director of wines at Sothby’s and the director of tasting at the Wine Spectator magazine.
