Fenavin 2009: Spain's national wine fair gets better

I was reading this article last Tuesday and I found it interesting. It is about Fenavin, short for Fiera Nacional del Vino (or National Wine Fair in English). It's objective is always to be the Spanish Wine Fair of Reference - internationally and domestically. The exhibition area covered 30,000 square meters of space, showcasing 1,200 wineries and over 6,000 different wines, that comes from all the wine regions of Spain.

The most unique feature of Fenavin, as the writer says itself, was the Wine Gallery. The Wine Gallery is where representative wines from the different exhibitors are lined up fr
om cava, white varietal, red varietal and sherries for easy visitor's tasting and reference. Each wine comes with an informative index card that contains the name of winery, brand name, estimated price in euro, viticultural notes, variteal components, awards and ratings, other pertinent info, plus the Fenavin both location of the Bodega.

The concept is brilliant, after going through tastings and choosing which varietal one prefer, you can then jot down the wine you like, get the booth location and then transact with the Bodega concern directly.

The Wine Gallery has 300 wines around estimated by the writer. The Wine Gallery covered all sorts of varietals from popular international favorites Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay, Savignon Blanc to Spanish staples Tempranillo, Garnacha, Verdejo, AlbariĆ²o, and to more unheard of varietals of Bobal, Sumoll, Tardana and Hondarribi Zuri. Wines cam from all over Spain, and a good percentage of the wines were also blends.

Fenavin 2009 was a great experience as the writer have said and there is definitely no other event that can get wine buyers, wine importers, wine writers-both international and local, to learn about Spanish exclusively. Congratulations to Fenavin for its world-class wine event.
