Spanish wine trade show is back on Nov 24


The Economic and Commercial Office of the Embassy of Spain has, this week, announced the return of the most important Spanish wine trade show on Thursday, 24th November, 2022 at Kempinski Hotel Gold Coast City, Accra after two years which saw many events postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The 7th edition of ‘Spirits of Spain Exhibition’ will once again bring together a great variety of Spain’s beverages, such as wine, sparkling wine, beer, vermouth and other alcoholic beverages to show all its power and potential to contribute to the revitalisation of the sector.
This event has been organised with the support of the Spanish Institute for Foreign Trade (ICEX) since 2015.

This year’s event will showcase a wide selection of wines and other alcoholic beverages from Spain in Ghana – over 70 different products – with the collaboration of 3 Ghanaian importers and 8 Spanish wineries. The event will be a meeting point for local professionals from the beverage sector: importers, distributors, food and hospitality companies and prescribers.

Along with the commercial exhibition, the Spirits of Spain Exhibition 2022 at Kempinski Hotel Gold Coast City, Accra will develop a programme of activities that will enhance the educational and sensory experiences linked to wine and other beverages. The trade show is targetted at Ghanaian companies and entrepreneurs interested in importing wines and beverages, such as beers, vermouths, cavas, etc. from Spain.

Miguel Casero, Head of the Economic and Commercial Office, highlighted the importance of the wine sector in Spain, the world’s third-largest wine-producing country. Spain also has the largest vineyard area in the world, and is the world’s largest exporter in terms of volume.

“Spain’s unique geography and situation are responsible for the wide range of climates available throughout the country, which give rise to a large number of different grapes and product varieties which can be elaborated there. With almost 4,000 bodegas and more than 10,000 different wines, Spain produces unique red, white and sparkling wine,” he emphasised.

He added that: “Regarding Ghana, Spain is one of the main exporters of wine and beverages, and its presence is growing fast. Among the main drivers behind the success of Spanish wines in Ghana are the great variety and quality of its wines, its significant production volumes and its price competitiveness compared to other countries. We can observe a growing interest in Spanish wines and beverages in Ghana, especially among wine experts and wine lovers”.

The Economic and Commercial Office of the Embassy of Spain remains focused on delivering quality business match-making through the event and its supporting programmes, making it the only trade show in Ghana specialising in Spanish wine and other alcoholic beverages.
