Wine without alcohol and isothermal containers were some proposals
Attendees were able to sample 150 different wines in special glasses
A large distributor of wines distributed a selection of its products in five core tables to "publicize their brands." Habitual this fair to be convinced of its effectiveness in capturing customers, one of their representatives, Fernando Iñigo, commented on the situation in the sector. "The crisis has affected as other areas, but also note the smoking ban."
Among the wines that Iñigo is the txakoli markets. Annoyed with the emergence of Burgos and Cantabria in the wine market, the commercial encouraged to "defend what is ours." "It is a market that is gaining more welcome. Before txakolis became more acidic and astringent. Now is well positioned in the market," said Inigo, who advised consumers to ask the wine "for the brand," as done "with clothes", and do not simply say, "Give me an upbringing".
Among the curiosities dotting the room, which by its coincidence with the Valentine's Day theme was love of wine, highlighting a limited edition of 10,530 bottles of white wine from vines more than 50 years that is sold in a kit isothermal and maintains a temperature low even in summer. The vessel, designed on modern lines, "suffer less stress," according to the winery.
"This fair is increasingly level," friends were congratulating Juan Mari Uribarri and Imanol Camiruaga two Plentzia fans who enjoyed the shared passion for wine. For ten euros, it was possible to access the event with a selection of wines, a special Riedel tasting and a pen to take notes. Coffee, ham and caviar were also at the meeting, organized by the Wine of Manu Martin.
