 Dubbed ‘A Taste of Spain’, the food and wine pairing party will take place on 19 June at the Palais de la Bourse in Bordeaux’s historic city centre from 8-11pm.

The event will shine a light on Spain’s top estates and the wines being made there to mark it being chosen as Vinexpo’s ‘Country of Honour’ this year.

Among the wineries in attendance will be CVNE, Pingus, Finca Allende, Marqués de Riscal, González Byass, Pazo de Señorans, Torres and Alvaro Palacios. 

Put on in collaboration with Wine Spectator, during the party cherry picked wines from the bodegas will be paired dishes created by 10 of Spain’s top chefs, selected by culinary co-chairs Ferran Adrià and José Andrés.

“A Taste of Spain is shaping up to be one of the most provocative and essential events of Vinexpo Bordeaux 2017,” said Vinexpo CEO Guillaume Deglise.

“We’re proud to work with Wine Spectator to attract such a prestigious line-up of bodegas to the exhibition.

“Their presence will add a new dimension to Vinexpo parties and will offer great opportunities to international buyers throughout the show. The tasting itself will be a must for any Vinexpo attendee,” he added.

“A Taste of Spain will present the richness and diversity of Europe’s most dynamic culture of wine and gastronomy,” added Wine Spectator’s executive editor, Thomas Matthews.

“No other wine region in the world has achieved such an impressive balance of tradition and modernity, revaluing ancient terroirs, exploring indigenous grapes, and using modern techniques to make exciting and distinctive wines,” he added.
