Concha y Toro’s Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2020 won a Gold Medal at The Drink Business – Global Organic and Vegan Masters in its 2022 edition.
This competition takes into account organic and vegan wines, which have entered the mainstream in recent years as a popular choice for consumers, and this has been reflected in an increase in production worldwide. The Global Organic & Vegan Wine Masters judged certified wines from around the world, and is open to all styles of wine.
The judging panel for this competition is composed exclusively of Masters of Wine, Master Sommeliers and senior buyers, judging wines exclusively on style and price.
“The caliber of judges guarantees international recognition for all medals awarded. There has never been a more exciting time for organic wine, and the Global Organic & Vegan Wine Masters will recognize the best wines in this rapidly developing category,” acknowledges The Drink Business – Global Organic and Vegan Masters.

The Gran Reserva vineyards are an important part of the project to conserve native forest areas and protect local biodiversity. Our native forests have the ability to retain rainwater and control the kind of climate change that results from water shortages.
We take care of 1,432 hectares of protected forests and, on average per vineyard, a total of 105 species of fauna and 48 species of registered flora.
Our effort to preserve nature begins with responsible water consumption. 99% of the water we use comes from surface and subterranean sources.
Our vineyards are drip irrigated, which translates to a 90% efficiency on water consumption, and over the past 3 years, we’ve reduced our water footprint by 10%.
All of our winemaking processes require the use of energy. Our choice to invest in clean, renewable energy reflects our desire to co-create a sustainable planet for the future.
100% of the electricity used to make the wines in the Gran Reserva collection come from renewable sources, including solar energy.
Concha y Toro has been certified under the Wines of Chile Sustainability Code since 2012, which means that our vineyards are officially recognized as sustainable vineyards.
The wines in our Gran Reserva collection are crafted entirely from estate-owned grapes in sustainably managed vineyards.
