XVIII Wine Tasting of the EmpordàOnce again, Figueres in the north-east of Catalonia, will host the wine tasting of the Empordà the 7th until the 11th of September 2012. The origin of this wine tasting is linked to the need of the wine sector of the Empordà region to get to know their products. Born 28 years ago, the first edition had the participation of 12 wineries, their success was encouraging for other wineries to join in subsequent calls, reaching more than 30 wineries this year. Also present at the tasting is food, especially duck and sausages, elaborated in the same region, that accompany the more than 100 wines, champagnes and dessert wines present at the tasting. The wine tasting is held at the Rambla of Figueres, a very emblematic part of the city, ideal for a walk and talk while enjoying a good wine.
