If you are a wine connoisseur or simply are fascinated by the art of making wine then this is the event for you. The Castilla-La Mancha US Tour will stop in Houston, Denver, and Los Angeles in June which will feature: tasting seminars, new pre-tastings for importers, and walk-around grand tastings.
Castilla-La Mancha is a region located in central Spain and is the stomping ground of the famous literary figure, Don Quixote- who is a middle-aged gentleman from the region of La Mancha in central Spain. In fact, wines produced in Castilla-La Mancha now print the bust of Don Quixote with the words "Vinos de la Espana de Don Quixote" on the bottles.
Castilla-La Mancha is the most expansive wine-producing region in the world. It is a land of fascinating foods and cultural traditions and, naturally, a wide variety of wines. The area is composed of limestone clay along with other materials which make it ideal for growing grapes.
There is so much for the US trade to discover about the quality and diversity of wines and they aim to continue sharing our history and tradition through these tastings. On June 6th, this fabulous event comes to Los Angeles. Attendees will be able to taste magnificent wines from across the globe as well as pair them with decadent Spanish favorites while mingling and observing dancing. Attendees will also have the chance to attend a seminar conducted by Karen MacNeil, author of The Wine Bible. MacNeil will share the winemaking history of the region of Castilla-La Mancha, the technical qualities of its wines, and the sales opportunity for these wines in the US market.
The participating wineries include Vinos&Bodegas, Bodegas Arrayán, Bodega Los Alijibes, Bodegas Santa Cruz, Encomienda de Cervera, Bodegas El Progreso, Casa Gualda, Bodegas San Dionisio, Dominio de Punctum, Finca El Refugio, Bodegas Romero de Avila, Altolandón, Bogarve 1915, Bodegas Verum, Bodegas Piqueras, Bodegas Yuntero, Bodegas Olcaviana, Finca Los Alijares, Bodegas Aruspide, Dehesa El Carrascal, Bodegas Tavera, Bodegas Verdúguez, Mont Reaga, Finca La Estacada, and Bodegas Cristo de la Vega.
