Bordeaux wine professor Denis Dubourdieu was recently named Man of the Year 2016 of the influential wine magazine Decanter. This fine gentleman was the person who way back in the 1980s persuaded Meridiana’s founder Mark Miceli Farrugia, that there was potential for production of high quality wines in Malta too. Maltese viniculture owes a lot to Professor Dubourdieu. Meridiana thanks you and congratulates you on your great achievement 🙂
