At this sixth edition of the National Trade Fair on Wine, which is set to open its doors on Tuesday, May 10th in the Ciudad Real trade fair grounds, the wine reviewer and expert Jay Miller, Robert Parker's right-hand man in the prestigious publication The Wine Advocate, will be putting forward his impressions of Spanish wine, with particular emphasis on the wines of Castilla-La Mancha, including current introduction of the product on the American market.

During the second day of the trade fair and for a full hour, Jay Miller, considered worldwide as a great expert in the wine sector, along with Pancho Campo will be answering the questions of the winery owners and the media that will be participating in the encounter. This very high level meeting will undoubtedly draw the attention of the exhibitors and media groups that are attending the trade fair, be these from Spain or from all over the world.

There is no doubt that the contributions made in this forum will be very interesting and unusual, because it is taking place a year after the American reviewer has visited a diversity of the country's wine producing regions in order to score the products for The Wine Advocate, globally considered the most influential specialized publication.

This is Jay Miller's first visit to the trade fair, hence the expectations created around his figure, considered as he is to be the right-hand man of one of the most idolized gurus of the world of wine, if not the most idolized, none other than Robert Parker. He will be accompanied by Pancho Campo, President of The Wine Academy, who has been in charge of coordinating this meeting and the activities at the trade fair. In his opinion FENAVIN is the greatest national trade fair and a standard of reference in the sector. The Wine Academy is currently immersed in preparing the upcoming edition of Winefuture in Hong Kong, set to be published in November of 2011.

The meeting with the winery owners and media groups will be taking place on Wednesday, May 11th at 11.00 a.m. in the trade fair pavilion auditorium. The activity is sponsored by 'Vinos de la Tierra de Don Quijote'.
