SPAIN’S finest tipples go head to head in the country’s most prestigious wine contest this month.
The 16th House of the Best Spanish Wines exhibition will judge a record 200 bodegas at Madrid’s Palacio Municipal on October 29.
Organisers Guia Penin are bringing together the best wines from their 2016 guide, for which more than 11,200 were sampled from all over Spain.
Sommeliers, distributors and importers will pour into the event from midday.
Visitors wanting to sample the wines can enter from 5pm for a €60 charge.
The Jamon de Teruel will be serving jamon from white pigs, considered the world’s finest.
The day will also host the CORAVIN Wine Challenge, a blind-tasting of the 2016 Guia Penin’s best wines.
