“I’m really excited to be presenting to IWINETC delegates a delicious taste of the diversity of the wines of the Basque country.  From the windswept Atlantic, there will be the unique, refreshing wines from the Txakoli denominations. Then from Rioja, Spain’s most famous wine region, there are fine wines to discover and enjoy. I’ve also chosen these particular wineries as they are excellent for wine tourism, definitely worth putting on your ‘to visit’ lists.” Sarah Jane Evans, Master of Wine.
