Bodegas Ramón Bilbao pleased to announce the Spanish Wine Academy will host an educational seminar and tasting at this year’s Guía Peñín XII Salón Selección Event, taking place at City Winery on the Hudson River.

The Peñín Guide is the leading company in the promotion and diffusion of Spanish wine culture, both nationally and internationally. Trade and media members will have access to the full walkaround tasting from 11AM – 5PM, where over 20 wineries, including Ramón Bilbao, will be presenting their highest-rated wines (95 or higher).

Founded by its namesake in 1924 in Haro, Spain, the heart of Rioja, Ramón Bilbao has played a pioneering role in the development of the DOCa. The winery owns 445 acres of estate vineyards in exceptional sites and carefully tends an additional 2,224 acres in top-quality growing areas of Rioja. Head Winemaker and Managing Director, Rodolfo Bastida, has led the team to produce fresh and modern styles of Rioja wines with a deep commitment to terroir, site-specific vineyards and the pursuit of innovation.

The Spanish Wine Academy is a project created and driven by Ramón Bilbao with the aim of bringing the world closer to Spanish wine through training, promotions and education.

“Spain has always been a wine country,” says Alberto Saldón Maté, Spanish Wine Academy director. “In fact, we have the largest area of vineyards on the planet. There is a great oenological tradition and wine is one of our hallmarks; with the help of the Spanish Wine Academy we plan to take attendees on an inspiring journey through everything that adds to our wine culture.”
