Biscay, 29 March 2019.- The Bizkaiko Txakolina (Txakoli of Biscay) Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée yesterday in Madrid brought together wine industry professionals who wished to learn about the latest developments and trends of the main wineries which attended the Fair held at the Professional Association of Architects of Madrid (COAM) premises.
The inauguration, with mainstream media and several sommeliers with amazing careers, which was organised under the chairmanship of the Regulatory Council, represented by Unai Sulibarria, Vice Chairman, who welcomed the attendees, thanking their willingness to rediscover txakoli, and who were invited to visit the terroir to witness first-hand the revolution which is taking place, a dynamic and full of energy, an entrepreneurship and new techniques which have been successful in managing that txakolis are considered from among the best variety of white wine worldwide.
Following the presentation, an institutional wine tasting headed by the sommeliers María José Huertas, from La Terraza del Casino, and Iñaki Suárez, member of the Wine Tasting Committee of the Regulatory Council, wherein the guests were able to taste classic txakolis, aged and young txakolis, several with coupages which are on trend, other reds and even the extraordinary elaborations such as those of late harvest.
Throughout the day, the hospitality and distribution sector professionals, media, prescribers, students, sommeliers, aficionados and friends could discover the wines of these wineries thanks to their oenologists. And in the afternoon, an original express wine tasting or speed tasting session geared towards on-line influencers was held which was a great way in capping off the fair.
The new Txakoli of Biscay is revamped and modernised, elaborating a product with care, attention to detail and a differential quality. Under the slogan “SAY YES TO A TXAKOLI” this wine has returned to Madrid to present its superior versions.
