21ST GOLDEN NOSE OF VALENCIA AWARDS
Spanish Wine / 2012-01-23 16:51:49
This contest is one of the best known competitions for wine waiters in Spain. This year it celebrates 5 semifinals in different parts of the country.
They have already taken place in Santiago de Compostela and Bilbao. Now it is Valencia's turn on 18th of January.
More than 50 professionals will take part in practical and theory tests. Sampling more than 45 wines, only 10 wine waiters will go through to the final. The best wine waiter of the semifinals so far has been Miguel Angel Garri of the Frisone restaurant in Elche.
There are still the semifinals to go in Barcelona, Madrid and Málaga. The final will be held back in Madrid in June. More than 400 professionals from all over Spain participate in this competition, which is very attractive for those who aim to make a mark in the world of wine in Spain. What is clear is that those who have an important place already in the world of wine do not go to these sorts of events. They turn into events of promises of egos, young or not so young, very interesting but very ephemeral. Whatever the case, it is needed.
