This past four months, Bodegas Patrocinio has attended a number of different events, show rooms and tastings to promote the newest vintages of its different wine ranges. The winery has been present at Fitur, the Assembly of Sommeliers of Bilbao, the wine week of the Polytechnic University of Madrid, and in the tasting at the “Jornadas de Calidad”, held in Uruñuela.
For the second January in a row, Bodegas Patrocinio took part in one of the tastings organised by La Rioja Tourism at Fitur 2017. As part of Rioja Day at the International Fair, sales director José Luis Gobantes offered a tasting of Lágrimas de María Tempranillo Blanco y Viura 2015, ZINIO Garnacha 2015 and ZINIO 200 2014 to thirty selected guests.
At the beginning of February, Bodegas Patrocinio took part for the first time in Experiencia Verema in Palma de Mallorca. Visitors were able to sample new vintages of Lágrimas de María white and rosé 2016, ZINIO Garnacha 2015 and ZINIO Crianza 2014 with advice from commercial director Juan Pradell. In the last week of February we were also guests at the UAES Assembly 2017, held at the Sociedad Bilbaína on Monday 27 and Tuesday 28 February. The Basque Association of Sommeliers served as hosts this year and prepared a programme combining working sessions with training activities and presentations about the UAES for authorities and members of the Basque sommelier industry.
Another event which Bodegas Patrocinio attended was the XXXIII University Wine Week in Madrid, from 27 March to 1 April, to promote responsible wine consumption in the young student environment. Selected for the tasting, attended by 200 guests, were ZINIO 200 2014 and Lágrimas de María Crianza 2014.
Bodegas Patrocinio was also present at the “Jornadas de Calidad de Uruñuela”, with a tasting of our wines in the town and the chance to visit the winery.
