Concha y Toro awarded International drinks Company of the Year at the Drinks Business awards 2015.
Now in its 12th year, the Drinks Business awards have become the most authoritative, internationally respected badge of achievement in the alcoholic drinks industry. Unveiled each year at the London Wine Fair, this is a chance for outstanding companies and individuals to win high profile recognition in front of some of the industry’s most influential representatives.
The judges said: "This goes to a company that evidently doesn’t like to rest on its laurels. Although the operation broke through the billion-dollar mark for the first time in 2014, it was the investment in a new Centre for Research and Innovation in Chile that particularly impressed the judges. Dedicated to fostering a more sustainable future for the wine industry, this new facility will benefit both our winner, and viticulturists worldwide."
Eduardo Guilisasti, CEO of Concha y Toro said "We are very proud with this important recognition. 2014 was a pivotal year for Concha y Toro as the company managed to regain momentum in sales and profitability by focusing on core brands in each market and investing in a series of heavyweight marketing campaigns to drive brand awareness and engage the consumer on a level new to the wine industry. This nomination highlights the strong global position our company has achieved".
