Exclusive tasting party pairs fine Spanish wines with foods by Spain’s top chefs; slated for June 19, 2017 in Bordeaux, France

Bordeaux, France - 6 January 2017 - Vinexpo, the leading international exhibition for wine and spirits professionals, has partnered with Wine Spectator to bring an exciting new food and wine event – “A Taste of Spain” – to Bordeaux, France during Vinexpo Bordeaux 2017. The exclusive party will take place at the Palais de la Bourse in Bordeaux’s historic city center on Monday, June 19, from 8 to 11 p.m.

“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.”

A Taste of Spain will shine a spotlight on the great wines of Spain, Vinexpo Bordeaux’s “Country of Honor” in 2017. More than 100 Spanish bodegas have been hand-selected by Wine Spectator to present their wines. These will be paired with food prepared by 10 of Spain’s most celebrated chefs, selected by culinary co-chairs Ferran Adrià and José Andrés.

“Wine Spectator is pleased to partner with Vinexpo to showcase the wines of Spain, 2017’s Country of Honor,” said Marvin R. Shanken, editor and publisher of Wine Spectator. “We believe A Taste of Spain will be a benchmark for the country’s wine industry. Featuring an unprecedented gathering of top producers and key chefs, this event will present the richness and diversity of Europe’s most dynamic culture of wine and gastronomy.”

“As Wine Spectator’s lead taster on the wines of Spain for more than 20 years, I have tracked the country’s dynamic evolution, in quality, style and diversity,” added the magazine’s executive editor, Thomas Matthews. “The wineries participating in A Taste of Spain have been selected by Wine Spectator to showcase the industry’s quality, diversity and history. In my opinion, 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.”
