SPANISH WINE TASTING
After the great success of the previous editions of Vinexpo Hong Kong, the Spanish pavilion is once again hosting its own tasting room, where visitors and professionals are able to learn more about Spanish wines and taste some of the most excellent ones at the pavilion. Over the three days, six general tastings are being held at the Spanish pavilion to showcase some of the most interesting local varieties, such as Monastrell, Garnacha, Syrah and Tempranillo, as well as a wide variety of local white wines and one of the most wellknown P.D.O., Rioja.
