ICEX Spain Exports and Investments in cooperation with the Economic and Commercial Office of the Embassy of Spain in Vilnius (in charge of the markets of Lithuania and Latvia) is organizing a tasting of Spanish sparkling wines, with the aim of promoting of those already present in Latvian market and presenting new ones that may be of interest of Latvian consumers.
Until the turn of the century, understanding Spanish sparkling wine was quite easy. Spain produced a single category, Cava, which came mostly, but not only, from Catalonia. It is a high-quality wine, which has inspired other Spanish regions to produce their own sparkling varieties. Today, Spain is one of the most important sparkling wine producing countries in the world, due to the high quality and variety of these products.
With this tasting we do not only want to offer specific options that could be successful in the Latvian market, but also, we want to show the attendees examples of the variety of sparkling wines that Spain's wine sector can offer.
The tasting will take place on the 5th of October and will be guided by Jānis Kaļķis, a professional sommelier.
Participation in the tasting is only possible with prior registration.
