More than 400 wines from mainland Spain and the Canary Islands exhibited

The Peñín Guide organised the IV Salón Selección de Tenerife, in the Mencey Hotel, where the best 400 wines from mainland Spain and the Canary Islands could be tasted.

From midday yesterday until eight o’clock at night, the Salón Selección Tenerife at the Grand Hotel Mencey was a parade of professionals from the catering sector who were accredited to attend the IV Salón Selección de la Guia Peñín, where more than 400 wines produced by 80 wineries from the peninsula and the Canary Islands were presented. For eight hours the exhibiting wineries presented their best wines, rated 90 points or more, and in best buys with 3, 4 or 5 stars, according to the guide, categories that encompass the segment of Spanish wines of the highest quality.

This same trade fair was also held on Monday, 26 June, at the Santa Catalina Hotel in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Adolfo Gatell, Director General of the Peñín Guide, told this newspaper that the publication continues to be published in German, English and Spanish, and that the online version, in addition to the aforementioned, is also translated into Chinese.

In total, the 80 wineries present will be exhibiting more than 400 wines in a tour of the entire national wine-growing panorama with some thirty wine-producing areas: Abona, Bierzo, Bizkaiko Txakolina, Cava, Conca de Barberà, Costers del Segre, Gran Canaria, Jumilla, León, Montilla-Moriles, Montsant, Pago de Arínzano, Penedès, Priorat, Rías Baíxas, Ribera del Duero, Rioja, Rueda, Tacoronte-Acentejo, Toro, Uclés, Vino de Calidad de Cebreros, Vino de Calidad de las Islas Canarias, Vino de Mesa, Vinos Espumosos, VT Castilla, VT Castilla y León, VT Mallorca, Ycoden-Daute-Isora, Yecla, Ribeiro, Utiel-Requena and Valencia.

The Peñín Guide also wanted to play a leading role and promote the presence of local wineries. The Island Council of Tenerife presented Altos de Trevejos, Bodega Vento, Bodega El Lomo, Bodegas Cráter, Bodegas Insulares Tenerife, Bodegas LoHer, Bodega Piedra Fluida, Tabares and Winery Burgmann Tenerife.

The Island Council’s Minister for Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, Javier Parrilla, stressed the importance of these guides to promote Tenerife’s wineries, which in recent years have stood out for the improvement in the quality of their wines and above all for the professionalisation of the sector, which has undergone a qualitative change, the results of which we are seeing with the national and international awards that wine companies win every day.

The events have counted with the collaboration of Pan de Olivo, which will provide its artisan picks, and the Association of Sommeliers of the Canary Islands.

Adolfo Gatell pointed out the importance of holding these shows to promote the Spanish wineries that are currently producing great wines.
