Alvarinhos to the World 2015 will be in Stockholm
29 October 15
The Swedish capital will be, next 20th November, the chosen place by the Spanish Union of Collectors for the fourth edition of the International Competition Alvarinhos to the World
‘Alvarinhos to the World’ an exclusive initiative which aims to enhance the potential of Alvarinho grape variety in the main international markets, continues its journey through the world's most important capitals of wine, landing this year in Stockholm. Once again, ‘Alvarinhos to the World’ will organize special wine tastings for the most important opinion leaders, on this occasion, of the Swedish market. In this way the Systembolaget, Swedish State monopoly on the sale of alcoholic beverages and main reference in the wine commercialization, will have three of its most important representatives, specifically Anders Barren (responsible for the Spanish wine sales), Göran Klintberg (responsible for the Portugal wine sales), and Ulf Sjödin, Master of Wine and Director of Management Category in this organization. The initiative will also bring together some of the most influential prescribers of the Scandinavian country, as Alf Tumble, editor of the wine section in the Dagens Nyheter — the Swedish newspaper with the highest circulation —, and the Master of Wine Madeleine Stenwreth. The sommeliers, Danielle Lundh (Frantzen Restaurant), Maya Samuelsson, marketing director of Wine Scandinavian Academy, and Susanne Berglund, best Swedish sommelier in 2004, complete the panel of judges who will be responsible for the evaluation in this strict wine and spirits tasting. ‘Alvarinhos to the World’ Stockholm 2015 will open again their registration, exclusively until the next 11st November, to the elaborations coming from both indigenous areas of this Iberian variety: Galicia wine and demarcated region of Vinho Verde.
