New York, NY (PRWEB) October 22, 2014
The Trade Commission of Spain announces the Spain’s Great Match event will take place on November 10th in Los Angeles at the renowned restaurant, The Bazaar by José Andrés. This collaborative extravaganza of Spanish culture celebrates the distinctive wines, food and design of Spain. Over 200 wines representing the varietals and wine regions of Spain will be featured in a walk-around tasting format. 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.
Earlier in the day, members of the wine trade and press will also be invited to a tutored tasting seminar, showcasing Spain’s new power couple, D.O. Rueda and D.O. Ribera del Duero. In the evening, the event will open to the public as a ticketed lifestyle event and will feature, along with the wine stations, a selection of tapas by The Bazaar by José Andrés. A portion of event proceeds will benefit Minds Matter, a Los Angeles charitable organization who helps students from low-income families by broadening their dreams and preparing them for college success.
“We are delighted to bring the wine, food, and culture of Spain back to Los Angeles,” says Angel Martín Acebes, Senior Trade Commissioner of The Trade Commission of Spain in New York. “The Bazaar by José Andrés offers an impeccable setting for our Spain’s Great Match event.”
