The Conatvs vineyard wins the silver medal at the XX International Wine Contest

The wine called Airam Conatvs 2021 has been rewarded with a Silver Bacchus during the XX International Wine Contest 2022, the great Spanish date with the world of wines, that took place from 25th to 28th of April, in Madrid. For four days, the contest gathered 70 wine-tasting experts, of which specialised journalists, sommeliers, oenologists, Masters of Wine and Masters of Sommelier. Wines from all over the world participated in this prestigious contest. Fuerteventura's Cabildo congratulated the Majorero Conatvs vineyard for this award, which comes as an addition to the others that they have already won, as the first vineyard on the Island to have been awarded the Canary Islands' protected designation of origin (DOP). The Agricultural Cooperative of Gran Tarajal opened its doors, in May, to offer local agricultural produce to the population. The premises are open to the public from Monday to Friday, from 9 am to 2:30 pm. According to the Cabildo's President, Sergio Lloret López, the Cabildo is the main investor to help promote the cooperative, in order to reinforce the island's productive structure. As for the first deputy president, Lola García, it is essential to provide support to local producers to help agriculture prevail and guarantee the generational shift. On the other hand, the island's councillor for Agriculture, Livestock farming and Fishing, David de Vera, explained that the Cabildo is providing support by subsidising the cooperative's activity, to ensure the continuity of its activity.
