Spain's finest wines showcased at Barcelona Wine Week
Some 550 companies from 40 different Spanish winegrowing regions take part in fair
The first ever Barcelona Wine Week fair kicked off in the Catalan capital on Monday with the aim of boosting the international profile of wine from all over Spain, showcasing fine wines made by both big and small producers.
Bringing together some 550 companies hailing from 40 different winegrowing regions in Spain, they are recognized by their designation of origin (DO), the classification that vouches for the quality and geographical origin of Spain's wine producers
BWW is organized by Alimentaria Exhibitions, the group behind the Alimentaria food and drinks fair, and it hopes to attract over 18,000 industry professionals.
While wine tasting may be the fair's most attractive feature, it has also put forth a program with more than 50 activities including talks and round tables on sustainability, the climate emergency's effects on the industry, or on how to make sake, among many others.
Wine connoisseurs can head over to Barcelona's Fira Montjuïc until Wednesday to taste the best wine Spain has to offer.
