A major date in our diary this year was the The Temps de Vi (Time for Wine) Fair in Vilanova i la Geltrü, just 40 km south of Barcelona. The fair, which took place during the second weekend in June, is one of the main events in the area and is held with the purpose of promoting wines made in Catalonia as well as the local wine and cava culture and increasing the presence of these local products on restaurant menus.
This fair, which has become a point of reference in the wine world, hopes to ensure recognition for Vilanova as a wine-growing town in its own geographical area.
At this year’s forty or so stands, visitors were able to enjoy or sign up for blind tastings, concerts, talks and many more parallel activities, such as tastings out at sea.
This was the first time for the Padró i Família vermouths on the Rambla in Vilanova, and they were accompanied by two wines, Ipsis and Nabuc, from the Vins Padró collection. Our products were very well-received by visitors to the fair – over 500 people stopped by at our stand and were able to see for themselves the excellent quality of our products.
