Spokespersons of the emblematic Hotel Nacional de Cuba are calling for the 21st edition of the traditional International Wine Festival to be held from 2 to 4 November in the 1930 Room.

“It will be an opportunity to fraternise, to present new products and flavours to the market, as well as to show the goodness of each wine that is marketed in Cuba,” said Víctor Rosquete, commercial specialist of the Hotel, explaining that this new event will bring together producers, marketers, specialists, distributors, sellers and consumers.

According to the announcement, this is an event in which the exchange between professionals in the field is a priority, where dissimilar designs and values compete to later award prizes to each of the attending entities, according to Cuban press reports.

On 1 November, the day before the official inauguration, a blind tasting will be held, according to the organisers, who have also announced presentations by the different participating houses and wineries.

For the following day they announce presentations, conferences, workshops, business meetings and pairings of Havana cigars with wines, followed by exhibitions, awards and closing ceremony in the 1930 Hall of the aforementioned venue.

At the end of the information Rosquete explained that in this 21st edition of the traditional Fiesta, awards will be given for the Best stand design among the exhibiting companies; the winning wines in the Blind Tasting in the different competition categories; the winning wine in the pairing of Havana cigars with wines.
