The global crisis has slowed down the consumption of wine in many markets. However, Spain’s foreign transactions in the industry have increased by 9.8% in value, with a rise in the average sale price by 32.2% between January and April, 2013, as a study carried out by the study the Spanish Institute for Foreign Trade (ICEX) has revealed.

It seems that Spanish wines have attracted international recognition by the foreign press, as well as for the awards granted in different competitions. Spanish wines obtained 524 awards, from a total of 1,536 participants, at the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles, where Spain won 24 'Great Gold Medals', surpassing France and Portugal.

During the month of September the ICEX, in cooperation with the network of Spain’s Economic and Commercial Offices in Europe has organized a series of promoting activities in different European cities.

Starting September 17, the 9th Edition of the Spanish Wines Fair will be held in Poland with the purpose to increase our catalogue in this market, as well as to support the Spanish wineries to get in contact with potential importers.

On the same date, the Spanish Economic and Commercial Office in London, along with  “Wines from Spain” have organized the contest "The Wines from Spain Awards 2013", whose objective is to inform the British consumer about the variety and quality of Spanish wines. During the ceremony, a selected group of wine industry experts, led by the journalist and “Master of Wine”, Tim Atkin, will select among participants the top hundred wines that are currently sold on the British market.

Finally, on September 23-25, ICEX and the economic Office of the Embassy of Spain in Düsseldorf have organized the 12th Edition of the Spanish wines fair in Wiesbaden Hamburg respectively, which aims to introduce new wineries in the German market and to expand the distribution network in this country.
