Wines From Spain Award Winners Head to Great Britain for Roadshow

Seven lucky cities are in for a Spanish treat this fall. Cambridge, Birmingham, Manchester, Winchester, Edinburgh, London, and Cardiff will all welcome the Eat Spain, Drink Spain roadshow throughout November and early December. Seven Spanish food and wine fairs will showcase a selection of the winning wines from the 2018 Wines from Spain Awards, now in their 6th edition. Eat Spain, Drink Spain will team up with local wine merchants and Spanish venues in each city to offer attendees some amazing culinary treats.

The winning wines were chosen based solely on their “liquid merit,” and the selection includes everything from “show-stopping cavas to scintillating reds, mouth-watering whites and intriguing sherries.” While there are some very familiar names on the list, there are also wines from lesser-known areas, such as Bullas, Ribeiro and Manchuela.

The winners were chosen after a rigorous judging process. Judges included Tim Atkin MW (Chair of Judges), Sarah Abbott MW (Wine Consultant), Sarah Benson (Wine Buyer Co-op), Peter McCombie MW (Wine Consultant), Charles Metcalfe (Wine Writer), Christine Parkinson (Head of Wine at Hakkasan Group), Nick Room (Wine Buyer Waitrose), Noel Young (Noel Young Fine Wines Cambridge), Simon Woods (Wine Writer), Beth Willard (Wine Buyer Laithwaite’s Wine), Annette Scarfe MW (Wine Consultant), Ana Sapungiu MW (Wine Buyer Oddbins), and Anthony Rose (Wine Writer).
