With 90% of the world’s organic grapes coming from European wine regions Spain also takes second place for organic production with 11.6% of all wines produced in Spain now being organic.
The Wines of Spain promotion company continues to be very active in the Irish market through initiatives such as Spanish Wine Week.
6th Spanish Food & Wine Week
Now that restaurants are reopened and indoor dining has returned, Wines of Spain will be turning its focus to the restaurant and wine bar sector.
The sixth edition of Spanish Food & Wine Week runs from the 4th to the 10th of October this year and includes a number of events featuring food and wine tastings as well as cookery demonstrations presented by some of Ireland’s most prestigious chefs.
It also features lots of discounts and promotional offers countrywide through a network of wine shops, off-licences, restaurants, wine bars and online retailers.
On Tuesday the 5th of October, La Cave Wine Bar, Dublin’s oldest wine bar, joins forces with Jean Smullen WSET to offer an evening of Spanish food and wine in its upstairs function room from 6.30 to 8.30pm. Jean will present a selection of six wines from a number of regions in Spain that highlight the unique diversity of these Spanish wine styles. A selection of Tapas to match the wine will also be served and those attending can enter a draw to win an exclusive wine hamper featuring all six wines.
Tickets cost €25 and must be booked in advance.
