New York, NY (PRWEB) October 06, 2014
The Trade Commission of Spain will be hosting the 21st annual Spain’s Great Match event on October 8th in New York’s iconic IAC HQ Building, celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Wines from Spain. This collaborative extravaganza of Spanish culture celebrates the distinctive wines, food and design of Spain. American importers and distributors of Spanish wines will present their best products, including new wines and the latest vintages, to wine industry professionals and consumers. Guests will be transported to Spain with over 300 wines representing many of Spain’s indigenous varietals and top wine regions in a walk-around tasting for members of the wine trade and press during the day, followed by a public event in the evening.
During the day, members of the wine trade and press will also be invited to a seminar of significant Spanish wines and smaller tutored regional tasting seminars.
In the evening, the Great Match will open to the public for a ticketed lifestyle event. This year’s event offers delicious and authentic tapas from ten of the top Spanish restaurants in New York City: Andanada, Barraca Restaurant, Casa Mono, Donostia, El Born, Salinas Restaurant & Tapas Bar, Socarrat Paella Bar, Solera, Tertulia and Txikito. Each restaurant’s menu will represent one of ten Spanish regions.
In addition to the extensive offering of wine and tapas, this year’s Great Match will showcase a Cava Bubble Lounge featuring the finest expression of Spanish sparkling wine, and a Red Meets White terrace, marking the first public appearance of Spain’s new power couple, D.O. Rueda and D.O. Ribera del Duero.
“Spain is filled with some of the most delicious and exciting food and wine in the world,” says Angel Martín Acebes, Senior Trade Commissioner of The Trade Commission of Spain in New York. We are delighted to offer our guests a taste of Spain through the variety of regional tapas showcased by the restaurants.”
