Twenty wineries from various DO have occasionally come together to offer an 'exceptional' tasting red wines, whites and champagnes that are outside the most commercial circuit. Fredi Torres, one of the participants winegrowers and co-organizer of the event, described the experience "very positive", not ruling out new calls for this appointment.
The tasting, an event outside the Food Fair, took place on Tuesday 26 April and from 11 in the morning the exhibition space Studio Glass, located in Còrsega 240 Barcelona street, has become a large stage with transit constant public.
Fredi Torres, believes that the success of the this event has been because this tasting "has been a unique occasion in which distributors and vintners have released exceptional wines that are not in the usual circuits of distribution. This success requires us 'almost' back to make a new call. the public response has been excellent and Glass Studio space, the ideal place. "
Emmanuel Lorenzo, CEO of Studio Glass for Spain and Portugal, the organization of this event "has been a major challenge, especially for the little time that is provided. But in the end all have been happy."
