Julian Orti Export Director from Pascual Toso said of the award win: “We are absolutely delighted to be awarded with this honour from the IWSC.  We are working with Kingsland Drinks to increase our footprint in the UK and this is a great accolade to help us achieve this.”

Neil Anderson, Marketing Director at Kingsland Drinks said of the award, “We are proud that Pascual Toso has won this prestigious award.  We work in partnership with the winery and we know that they, like us, value high quality for their consumers.”
