Cooperatives and wineries from all the autonomous communities and in particular from Ciudad Real are hastening their steps to complete the registration procedures, the same in search of a good location
The National Trade Fair on Wine, FENAVIN, will offer professionals visiting Ciudad Real between the upcoming dates of May 5th to the 7th a true map of our country's wine, given that its exhibition space will host wineries from all the Spanish regions.
Included within this melting pot of autonomous communities that will occupy the entire Ciudad Real fair grounds, wineries from Catalonia, the Basque Country and from Castilla-Leon, Aragon and Navarre are standing out on their own given the haste with which they have completed their registration cards, and all this with the intention of assuring themselves a good location.
Also, massive presence of Castellano-Manchego wineries and cooperatives will allow national and foreign visitors alike to establish business contacts with wineries with origins as diverse as those of Castilla-La Mancha itself, including different denominations of origin ranging from the Canary Islands right through to the Balearic Islands, along with Ribeiro Denomination of Origin or Montilla-Moriles, as well as Ribera de Duero, Toro, Rueda, Priorat, etc.
To be highlighted from amongst the Castilla-La Mancha wineries up until now, this given their number, mention must be made to those from Ciudad Real and Albacete, which will have a very important presence at FENAVIN, organizational machinery of which "continues to prepare each and every detail so that the very best professional showcase of Spanish Wine can be offered", as has been explained by the Trade Fair's Director, Manuel Juliá.
Good expectations for FENAVIN 2009
In view of the number of wineries that have registered, with said number standing very close to a thousand, and with still three weeks to go before the registration period for the wineries that will be at FENAVIN in grouped fashion is definitively closed, "expectations are very good", this according to the President of the Provincial Government and of the Trade Fair itself, Nemesio de Lara, who expects "excellent business figures, given that both the number of wineries and the quality of those already present is spectacular".
We must remember that FENAVIN 2007 closed its doors with an increase of 300 percent in the number of commercial contacts, as 70,175 contacts were recorded as opposed to the 21,369 contacts that were accounted for in the 2005 edition.
