The Trade Commission of Spain in New York and Wines from Spain proudly announce the annual events of Spain’s Great Match, the largest comprehensive Spanish wine and food event in the U.S. This annual event will take place on October 1 at José Andrés’ new Spanish market and dining destination, Mercado Little Spain, with a second event in Miami on November 5.

Hundreds of wines, representing the diverse grape varieties and wine regions of Spain, will be featured in a walk-around tasting format. Spanish wineries and their American importers will be presenting the best of their portfolios, including new wines and the latest vintages, to wine industry professionals during the day and consumers in the evening.

During the daytime event, members of the wine trade and press are invited to a series of Spanish tasting seminars and workshops in addition to the walk-around tasting. In the evening, Spain’s Great Match will open to the public for a ticketed event that will feature food from Mercado Little Spain, including Jamon Ibérico de Bellota, Spanish cheeses, tortilla de patatas and churros, complemented by wine stations. The event will also include examples of Spain’s award-winning design industry.

“We are thrilled to be hosting Spain’s Great Match in the critically acclaimed Mercado Little Spain,” says Katrin Naelapaa, Director of Wines from Spain. “There is no venue that brings to life the great match of Spain’s outstanding wines, foods and design, like Mercado Little Spain.”

Wine trade and press are invited to attend the event for seminars and a walk-around tasting from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., while the evening event will be ticketed and open to the public from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. New York seminar schedules will follow shortly.
