During June and July we have been presenting our wines in California and Canada. We would like our distributors to get to know our winery’s philosophy first hand as well as the way we make our wines.
We started our tour in San Francisco, California, on 27th June and on 2nd July we travelled further to offer a series of training meetings with customers. We continued to Canada between the 3rd and 12th July, first in Alberta and then in Quebec.
During the month of August, the Menade team will take a break and will be back on tour in September in the US, in Texas and Florida to be exact. On 25th and 26th September, we will be taking part in the Wereldse Wijndagen 2016 (World Wine days 2016) in Waddinxveen, to support our importers, Coenecoop Wine Traders. This event, in its third year, brings together more than 120 wine producers from around the world every year and is attended by the hotel and catering industry together with wine professionals.
On the other hand, Warsaw will be our destination on 27th September, where we will be taking part in the 12th Wine Fair in Poland and we will visit some of Winoko’s, our importer’s, customers.
In Spain, we recently attended Vinum Nature in Barcelona, which like every year, has also announced this year’s award-winners: both Menade Verdejo 2015 and Menade Sauvignon 2015 have achieved a Golden Leaf (Hoja Dorada).
The summer festival calendar is highlighted again this year by sports events where the winery is involved, true to the ideal of supporting a healthy way of living with wine in moderation being a fundamental part. On 31st July, we will be sponsoring the Vuelta Ciclista (cycle race) in La Seca with mountain bikes, whilst on 18th September, we will be celebrating the Menade Prize, for another year, the Vuelta Ciclista at Medina del Campo.
