One of the most anticipated tastings of the new season is the “Wines from Spain” Trade Fair that takes place each March in the Old Billingsgate Market in London. Hundreds of producers exhibit their wines and hundreds of buyers attend to find the latest additions to their list. The new vintages of old favourites will be tasted, whilst offerings from new Bodegas in up and coming regions will be scrutinised and assessed.
The traditional wines of Rioja, Cava, Ribera del Duero, Navarra, La Mancha, Rias Baixas and Sherry are of course well represented. However, less well known regions such as Calatayud, Carinena, Bierzo, Costers del Segre and Monstant also appear giving a tremendous broad appeal to this tasting.
As a Wine Merchant you cannot fail to be inspired by these most interesting wines and of course wish to add them to your list. New wines containing Monastrell, Mazuelo, Mencia and Godello will be making their way to our shelves very soon!
Our monthly tasting held on the last Thursday and Friday of March will be of Wines from Spain and will feature Sherry, Cava, Rioja and lots more. The Spanish influence to this month will culminate in our Spanish weekend on 30th/31st March. Wines from Spain will be available to taste in our Wine Store in Bridport and a 10% discount on all Spanish wine will be offered.
As they say in Spain, Viva Espania!
