Taste more than 100 wines from 20 different cellars at the XVI DO Tarragona Wine Fair in Tarragona’s Rambla Nova.

The fair will open at 18.00 on Friday and will be open all weekend from 11.00 am onwards. Apart from the wine tastings, the fair also offers parallel activities like wine tasting for blind people, introduction to wine tasting, or jazz concerts. On the opening Friday the awards in the XX edition of the DO Tarragona bottled wine competiton will be presented in the jardens of the Metropol Theatre. The DO Tarragona and 15 restaurants from the Tarragona ART(e) collective have organised an exclusive wine list with 8 DO Tarragona wines to promote the winners of the wine competition through to June 15th.

The sixteenth edition of the DO Tarragona Wine Fair was presented at a press conference this morning at the Hotel Imperial Tarraco. The Fair will take place from Friday 30th May at 6pm throughout the weekend, from 11am to 11pm on Saturday 31 May and from 11am to 10pm on Sunday 1st June, in the Rambla Nova of Tarragona. The fair is organised by the Consell Regulador de la DO Tarragona and some 20 cellars will serve samples of over 100 wines. The presentation was attended by the President of the DO Tarragona Josep Lluís Grogués; its secretary/manager Àngels Collado and by the co-president of the ART(e) Tarragona restaurants association, Carles Salvadó.
A ticket to the fair will cost 10 euros and will be valid for six tastings, a commemorative wine glass and a glass carrying pouch. Josep Lluís Grogués underlined “The objective of the event is to convert the centre of Tarragona into a giant showroom for the wines of the DO Tarragona, in the city that lends its name to the DO.”
The structure of the fair will be similar to previous editions, with twenty stands of cellars from all regions of the DO (Alt Camp, Baix Camp, Tarragonès i Ribera d’Ebre) and cava producing companies from the same geographical region. “In total you’ll be able to taste more than 100 wines, sparkling wines and vermouths during the three days of the event. If the weather is on our side we hope to beat the 25.000 samples tasted last year over the three days. We have adapted the opening hours to coincide with the maximum number of visitors to the Rambla Nova.” added the DO Tarragona President. The fair, as always, will be complemented by the presence of various restaurants, and shops offering cheeses and charcouterie products to the visitors.
