Between tomorrow and Thursday (07-09 June), the wines of the D.O. Monterrei will be present in the wine salon ’London Wine Fair’.
Monterrei will be part of this joint promotion action carried out by the Association of Regulatory Councils of Wine of Galicia and the II.GG. Traditional Spirits and Liquors of Galicia (ACRUAGA). This is the second time that, after Vinexpo’, Galician wines and liqueurs are promoted jointly abroad.

In addition, they will receive information on the territory, wine history and tradition, soil and climatic characteristics, grape varieties or wine typology, among other issues. The ACRUAGA stand will be located at the Olympia London (Grand Hall-Ground Level-F48).
“Participating in this initiative will allow us to strengthen our presence in the United Kingdom, one of our main markets abroad,” says the president of C.R.D.O. Monterrei, Lara Da Silva. “This is the first time that we have participated in London Wine Fair’, the most important wine event in that country, and we hope to create synergies that will help to make known to the world our seal of wine quality and the excellent wines that are made in our area,” he concludes.
‘ London Wine Fair’
After the pandemic, the ‘London Wine Fair’ regains its face-to-face character. More than 14,500 professionals involved in the field of wine and spirits are expected to participate in this edition of the forum, one of the most important of those held in Europe.
The Association of Regulatory Councils of Wine and Traditional Spirits and Liquors of Galicia (ACRUAGA) was created to cover a collaboration agreement signed with IGAPE whose purpose is the international promotion of wines and distillates protected under the distinctive quality seals of Galicia.
An entity that will promote training actions and dissemination of the products covered by the quality seals of the six bodies integrated in the initiative: the regulatory councils of Monterrei, Rías Baixas, Ribeira Sacra, Ribeiro and Valdeorras -in the case of wines- and Aguardientes de Galicia.
