On November 12th, Wines from Spain returns to Miami for a stop on their annual ‘Spain’s Great Match’ US tour. The events will take place at the Moore Building in the Miami Design District. The Great Match is a collaborative celebration of the distinctive wines and food of Spain. American importers and distributors of Spanish wines will be presenting their best products, some new wines and the latest vintages to wine industry professionals (trade and press) and consumers. More than 200 Spanish wines will be featured in a walk-around tasting format. Leading Miami-area restaurants will serve their specialties paired to the wines in an evening consumer ticketed event.

During the afternoon, members of the wine trade and press will also be invited to a tutored tasting seminar offered by the Grandes Pagos de España, an association of Spanish wine producers dedicated to upholding and promoting Spain’s single estate wines.

In the evening, the Great Match event will open to the public and will feature, along with the wine stations, a selection of tapas from Miami’s best Spanish restaurants and tapas bars. The evening portion will be a ticketed lifestyle event, which will offer an extensive choice of wine and tapas. Event proceeds will benefit a Miami charitable organization (yet to be determined).

Guests will also have the opportunity to visit: Tapas: Spanish Design for Food, an exhibition organized by AC/E with the collaboration of SPAIN Arts & Culture, La Fundación España-Florida 500 Años and the Centro Cultural Español de Miami, in recognition of the 500th anniversary of the arrival of the first European, Spaniard Ponce de León, to the shores of Florida.
