Encuentro Verema: Valencia's Winter Wine Conference, January 26 & 27, 2007

Valencia's El Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía — Opera house and performing arts centre

The Sixth Edition of Encuentro Verema, Spain's most prestigious wine conference, took place in Valencia January 26 & 27, 2007 at the five-star Meliá Valencia Palace Hotel.

The conference, organized by Valencia-based Verema.com, one of the world's most visited wine websites, featured two days of high level seminars and tastings.

On January 26, in the evening Bodegas Herederos de Marqués de Riscal, presented "The Evolution of Rioja Wines in the past century," following by a tasting of historic vintages of Marqués de Riscal Reserva wines back to the stellar, legendary 1945, as well as their latest Barón de Chirel, the 2001, perhaps the greatest wine in Barón de Chirel's history.
