The first edition of Barcelona Wine Week, organised by the Fira Exhibition Centre and taking place between 3 and 5 February, hopes to increase the prestige of Spanish wine worldwide. Spain is the country with the largest amount of vineyardspace in the world, with almost a million hectares devoted to growing and producing wine across the country’s autonomous communities. Furthermore, it’s the country that exports more wine than any other, with over 21 million hectolitres shipped far and wide every year.

The purpose of the exhibition is to demonstrate the diversity and excellence of Spanish wines. As such, Barcelona Wine Week is set to welcome approximately 600 wine companies, along with 40 brands of certified origin.

Activities and events at Barcelona Wine Week

To make sure everyone attending the exhibition gets the full experience, lots of activities have been planned linking wine with a variety of other sectors, including art, food, music and literature. There will also be plenty of talks and round tables, led by experts, to discuss the latest trends in the world of wine. Discussions and debates will take place on wine and new technologies, digital markets, sustainable production, wine tourism, new consumer profiles and women in the world of wine, among many others. All the most interesting topics for a sector experiencing a real boom.

Naturally, Barcelona Wine Week will also provide spaces dedicated to tasting and sampling the very best wines, which will be served alongside tapas from some of the country’s leading restaurants. A sensory experience to value all these fantastic products together.
