The Wine Tunnel, a space dedicated exclusively to wine
The commitment to the quality of the wine sector is showcased at the XXVI Wine Tunnel/MAPA which allows visitors to get a closer view of the Spanish wine scene. They will get to know and taste the 22 grape varieties present at this year's exhibition, with over 330 wines from 250 wineries, selected by the technicians of the Ministry of Agriculture together with the Tasting Committee of the Wine Guide of the Gourmets Group.
Los Mejores de la Guía, bring together those producers whose wines are part of the Honour Roll of the prestigious 37th Gourmet Wine Guide (GVG), that is, those wines that have obtained a score equal to or greater than 90 points in the last edition.
The current situation in the world of wine will have its place in the Gourmet Round Tables that this year will discuss the irruption of organic, biodynamic and natural wines in the oenological panorama versus the traditional ones.
During the tour, visitors receive a small manual to learn about each reference. With the help of the sommeliers present at the Tunnel, they will get to know many of the wines on display up close.
To complete the wine experience, relevant national wineries offer tastings and introductory courses where attendees can learn about the different methods of production and aging of white, red, rosé, and sparkling wines, as well as their particularities.
