We are delighted to announce our second keynote speaker for the first edition of Spanish WINE Week, Clara Antúnez, who will be joining us on Day 1 of Spanish WINE Week at 14.00 delivering a talk titled The Surprising Terroirs & Wines of Spain
Spanish wines taste different. Spanish grape varieties give flavours that you don’t find anywhere else. The vineyards are planted on rock, on limestone, on volcanic ash, on clay, on sand, or on mixtures of all these. To fashion these raw materials into modern, exciting wines, there is a generation of young winemaker who have travelled the world and learned all there is to know about winemaking. The results are incredibly varied in style, from delicate, low-alcohol whites to the richest imaginable reds, from gentle rosés to the great sparkling wines. It will be an introduction to open your eyes to a new world of very different wines.
