The 31st Wines from Spain Annual Tasting will be held at London’s iconic Sky Garden on Tuesday 31 March 2020. Two tasting events will showcase the best of Spain’s winemaking talent to trade and consumer audiences.
61 importers and exporters of Spanish wines will present their portfolios on the day, including a selection of the latest vintages and releases available to the UK. Exporters seeking distribution will introduce their bodegas and wines to visitors looking for new producers.
An extensive line-up of DOs from Spain’s classic and emerging regions will be available to taste. Exciting whites, vibrant and delicate rosados, modern and traditional reds, will be featured alongside an array of sparkling, fortified and sweet wines. Visitors will be able to delve into the myriad expressions of Spain’s mighty red grapes: Tempranillo and Garnacha and explore indigenous gems – some with strong regional identities such as Galicia’s Mencía and Eastern Spain’s Bobal. Spanish whites will also feature heavily as an increasing number of traditional varieties are making their mark on the wine scene all around the world.
Fernando Muñoz, Director at Wines from Spain, comments: ‘We are looking forward to showcasing the extraordinary breadth and depth of Spain’s wine offering and to sharing the energy and passion of our winemakers with both trade visitors and consumers. The Spanish wine category continues to go from strength to strength, showing innovation and leadership in key areas such as organic wine production. Our Annual Tasting is a great opportunity for all to discover new wines, keep up with new trends and talk to the people behind the labels.’
Doors will open to consumers in the evening for a celebration of Spanish wine, food and culture, hosted in partnership with Three Wine Men. UK wine enthusiasts eager to explore the Spanish wine category will be encouraged to develop their knowledge, try new styles, discover new regions and enjoy the flavours of Spain from the top of one of London’s most iconic landmark.
