The Ministry of Agriculture, Food & Environmental Affairs in Washington, together with The Spanish Conference of Viticulture Regulatory Councils (CECRV), organized a Spanish wine tasting of different certificates of origin such as “Rueda”, “Toro” or “Rías Baixas” among others, accompanied by typical Spanish products as Manchego cheese or Iberian ham.

The famous Spanish Chef José Andrés, recently awarded by The Spanish Ministry of Agriculture for his commitment with the internationalization of the Spanish gastronomy, did not want to miss this gastronomical event, as well as the large number of high senior officials of the American Administration.

The event took place last 22nd May, at the residence of the Ambassador of Spain in Washington. This celebration is part of the export strategy of the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture, as a measure to make public the quality and diversity of Spanish wines.

Spain became the largest wine producer in the world in 2013, with an increase of 11% over the previous year in exports to USA.
Nowadays, about 700 Spanish wine cellars export their products to The States, increasing the presence of the Spanish Cuisine and Tapas bars outside our borders.
