Grand International Tasting 2014
On 17th and 18th July we took part in a very special event as guests of wine publication, FINE Das Weinmagazin in the town of Kiedrich on the banks of the River Rhine, where a select group of 24 international wineries were chosen to share wines and experiences. One such experience being a unique Magnum wine tasting event in which Grupo Pesquera, named as one of the most outstanding wineries in the world by the magazine, took part. On this occasion, we chose Tinto Pesquera Reserva 1996, which is on a par with the classic wines from the other guest wineries: Champagne Salon, Champagne Laurent-Perrier, Weingut Hirtzberger, Weingut Robert Weil, Chateau Giscours, Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Gaja, and Tenuta San Guido, to name but a few. We were also treated to a boat trip on the Rhine to taste wines from wineries located on the banks of the river, and to a gala dinner for 500 people including wine authorities, winemakers, viticulturists and entrepreneurs. Wines from the 24 participating wineries were served in what was the culmination of two days of intense experiences focusing on the wine industry. It was certainly a privilege to be able to share quality time with the best winemakers in the world and the team from FINE Magazine, in such an idyllic setting.
