spanish wine week in ireland 2018

The Spanish Wine Week is the most important event regarding Spanish Wines in Ireland. It consists of a number of wine events, tastings, promotions and competitions throughout Ireland main locations, such as Dublin, Galway, Cork, etc. Our aim is to show Irish people the great variety, but also quality of the Spanish wines.

In order to do that, in the inaugural Spanish Wine Week in 2016, Wines from Spain created a fascinating programme to educate, inspire and help make people passionate about the impressive variety and diversity of Spanish winemaking regions, grapes, flavours and style. In 2017 and 2018, the Spanish Commercial Office in Ireland and a wide net of partners have worked on that initial success to grow the week and turned it into an unmissable celebration of Spanish wine, and also of the country’s gastronomy and culture.

Join the party on social media with the hashtag #SpanishWineWeek and follow @SpainFoodWineIE to see all the information about the events, pictures and more.
