The public company Management of the Rural Environment of the Canary Islands (GMR Canarias), affiliated to the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries of the Government of the Canary Islands, will handle the collection and free shipment of wine samples from Canary Islands wineries that wish to participate in the XXI “Bacchus” International Wine Contest, a competition recognised by the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV) that will take place from 17 to 20 April in Madrid.
In order to support the Islands’ wine sector, GMR Canarias will cover the cost of sending all the samples to the competition, both for wineries and for professionals in the wine sector who want to showcase the quality of the island’s wines in a showcase such as Bacchus 2023. Those interested can contact firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the registration form and the declaration of responsibility document.
Bacchus is the only international wine competition in Spain that currently belongs to Vinofed, the federation that brings together the most renowned competitions worldwide. It is also recognised by the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV) and the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food.
Specialised journalists, oenologists, Masters of Wine and Masters of Sommelier are in charge of recognising and evaluating the quality of the wines present at Bacchus. More than 1,500 participating wines and a hundred tasters make Madrid the world’s wine capital. Some twenty countries and more than 80 Spanish designations of origin have registered for this event, which will bring together the best wines in the world.
