6th edition Spanish wine competition in the Netherlands 2021

ICEX Spain Trade and Investment and the Economic and Commercial Department of the Embassy of Spain in The Hague are organizing the 6th edition of the Spanish Wine Competition 2021 in the Netherlands. Spanish wineries and Dutch wine importers are invited to participate in this Spanish wine competition.

This competition provides an excellent overview of some of the best Spanish wines available in the Netherlands and it reveals hidden gems yet unknown.

The competition consists of 12 categories. The wines of producers who are still looking for representation in the Netherlands are assessed within separate categories.

A jury, consisting of Dutch wine specialists, will select a winner within each category through several blind tastings.

The following companies can participate in this activity:

  • Dutch importers who have Spanish wine in their range
  • Spanish wine producers whose wines are available on the Dutch market.
  • Spanish wine producers looking for representation on the Dutch market.

If your company would like to participate with its wines, please register no later than 28 February 2021.

Please note that a maximum of 1,000 wines can participate in this competition.
