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.

Since the 13th Century that the Spanish King Alfonso X gave this name to this versatile snack, the concept of tapa has revolutionized the international level kitchen world, imposing itself as one of the key elements of the Spanish gastronomic identity. The exhibition
“Tapas, Spanish design for food” shows how chefs and Spanish designers have turn gastronomy intoart.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
Through a natural journey of gastronomy, the exhibition starts with the making of dishes, following with our so Spanish utensils such as a glass wine jar or pressure cooker among others.

Apart from the most famous used tools of the country (and invented in Spain), a special mention of one of the most international and innovative cooks are made: Ferrán Adriá, who is considered the father of design culture at the kitchen and a visionary regarding creativity and experimentation at a table.
Following with the table concept, the exhibition leads to cutlery, which has evolved to more ergonomic forms and designs, being part of a whole with the dishes that are shown and it ends up with a look to the typical country food such as rice, stuffed olives or “Chupachups”, so internationally famous that is permanently part of The Museum of Modern Art in New York.

It definitely is a global tour through Spanish gastronomy that will remain open until next 23rd March in Washington.

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.

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.
