Agriloro – Award Winning Wines from the Ticino

Congratulations to Agriloro SA for the awards received at the 2021 Decanter World Wine Awards

Agriloro – Award Winning Wines from the Ticino
Meinrad C. Perler, born in 1937 and son of a farmer from the Canton Fribourg, came to the Canton Ticino in 1981, where he decided to dedicate the rest of his life to the wine-making trade, and purchased the “Tenimento dellOr”. The estate, mentioned in scripts from the 1800s give account of an important vinery in the region, was brought back to its original utilization. Following the acquisition, the re-planting of the grapes started, at first in the traditional method of the region. Soon the passion of the owner, for experimentation and innovation set foot in the winery. The grapes and the wine-making adheres to natural methods as far as possible and respect to nature.

In 2021 at the Decanter World Wine Awards held in London 3 of the wines of Agriloro were awarded Silver Medals, which is an achievement among 18’000 select wine bottles being evaluated and reflects the dedication of the owner and team over the years. The ‘Merlot Riserva Dell’Or’, the ‘Sottobosco’ as well as the ‘Granito’ were awarded the Silver Medal. The Decanter World Wine Awards, now in its 18th year, is the world’s largest and most influential winemaking contest, with an unparalleled global reach.

Swiss House Shop would like to take the opportunity to congratulate Agriloro SA for this achievement and we continue to be proud in representing the winery and these and select other wines from Agriloro in Hong Kong.
