Wines from Spain launches ‘mostly digital’ 2021 annual tasting

The series of mostly digital tastings, webinars and masterclasses focusing on new Spanish releases will be aimed at the UK trade and press.
An online catalogue will feature over 400 wines and offer visitors a sophisticated search tools to help them access the specific Spanish wines they’re looking for.
Visitors will be able to explore the wine list, view exhibitor portfolios and get in touch with Spanish wine importers and exporters directly.
Trade buyers and the press have the chance to register for a series of digital tastings and request samples from a list of highlights put forward by importers and exporters, enabling them to taste through the wines at their own time.
A programme of webinars and masterclasses will run from April until June and will include panel discussions as well as online tutored tastings focusing on key Spanish varieties, sustainability and regional styles.
The events programme will include sessions aimed specifically at the on-trade and the independent sectors.
“We are delighted to bring our annual tasting event to life in a mostly digital format for 2021. The Wines from Spain Annual Tasting is a key event in the trade tasting calendar, and although we can’t bring producers, importers and visitors physically together, we can provide a platform where they can connect, share and find information,” said Fernando Muñoz, UK director for Foods and Wines from Spain.
“Our digital tastings and masterclasses programme will allow visitors to have access to some of the Spanish wines that are available to the UK trade, whether these are already imported in Britain or are looking for routes to market.
“We hope that it helps buyers, retailers and the press stay close to the recent developments of the Spanish wine category. We are also planning physical tasting events on 22-23 June, and look forward to seeing our industry colleagues there in person, should conditions allow for a return to safe live events,” he added.
