CARM Awarded for Two Outstanding PDO Blends
Based in Trás-os-Montes, CARM earned a Gold Award for its Praemium brand and a Silver Award for its Grande Escolha brand, both of which are organic delicate blends.
The producers partially attributed their success to the unique terroir, climate and olive varieties used in the blends, both of which are certified with Protected Designation of Origin status by the European Union.
Located in Upper Duoro, famous for its wines, the company planted its first vineyards in 1966 and later expanded to organic olive cultivation.
