Spanish wine recently stepped into the limelight thanks to a project organized by Ramón Bilbao. This well-known winemaker organized the second edition of the Spanish Wine Academy, the goal of which is to teach trade professionals around the world about wines from Spain as well as to raise their profile.

Both the first edition and the latest edition were held in Moscow, and this year it attracted a crowd of about 100 people. Moscow was chosen given the growing interest in Spanish wines in Russia.

During the event, attendees learned about Spain’s main designations of origin from several leading figures from the wine world, such as Pedro Ballesteros, Fiona Beckett, Rodolfo Bastida and Robert Joseph.

Bastida, who is an enologist and general director of Bodegas Ramón Bilbao, has said, “Our company has always been committed to international markets, and in the last few years we have realized that there is a new generation of sommeliers who are very curious about Spanish wines. There is demand for information, and they want to try our wines, so we decided to create this Academy,” according to europapress.es.
