Pancho Campo unveils Spanish selection

WineFuture has announced the Spanish wines to be shown at its Hong Kong event in November.

The wines come from 16 producers representing 13 regions from Rias Baixas to Ribera del Duero, and have been selected by Pancho Campo MW.

The 16 wines, including iconic names such as Pazo Señorans and Mas La Plana, will be available for attendees to taste while Campo talks through the characteristics of Spain’s wine regions accompanied by audiovisual material designed “to transport the audience to the various regions, vineyards and wineries.”

Campo said, “This is one of the most important tastings of Spanish wine in history, taking into account the high level of the audience, whom we hope to impress with the quality, diversity and richness of Spanish wine.”

    This list does not represent at all Spanish wines, but Mr. Pancho Campo economic interests. Please, just check the sponsor (wineries paying money to him and his family business The Wine Academy) in his different web pages. His sponsors from Araex/Spanish Fine Wines, Torres, Castillo de Perelada o Ordonez wines. We are speak softly about it in Spain but no one will dare to speak a word … as long as Mr. Pancho Campo is the key to Jay Miller and Parker in Spain. Please, you are independent journalist contrast this list of wines with Mr. Campo sponsors, as well as the wineries visited by Jay Miller during this year in Spain. No questions about Vega Sicila or Eguren wines, but Domecq Wineries ? Valtravieso from Spanish Fine Wines. If you want Jay Miller to visit your winery just sponsor Mr. Pancho business. There are fact that anyone can contrast in a few minutes taking a look at his sponsors. It is so sad what is going on. What happened in Madrid DO? Pancho Campo requested a good amount of money to run a wine tasting with Jay Miller, but there was no budget he went directly to Navarra. Just make a phone call to DO Madrid in Spain.

    Hmmmm…Kind of looks like Jose has a point. Where is Dani Jimenez-Landi? Juan Antonio Ponce? Raul Perez (with his massive scores)? Lopez de Heredia?? Palacios? Most of these reds listed are super-international and have a tonne of new oak, not really respresnting the shift away from this style towards more balanced fresher reds. I personally don’t see them going well with Chinese food…
