|Second 2017 Ann Arbor Tasters Guild Event
PILGRIMAGE TO SPAIN
Wine Importer Dinner
with Andrew Pilgrim, Marketing Manager, VINAMERICAS
THURSDAY, February 16, 7:00 pm
|at Grange Kitchen, 118 W Liberty, Ann Arbor|
VINAMERICAS was founded in 2004 by David Bernad, a former management consultant, technology executive and a Columbia University engineering and economics graduate. Mr. Bernad was born in Huesca, a small town in northern Aragón (Spain) and moved to the United States in 1991. After founding and growing the Miami International Wine Fair to become the largest wine trade show in the country, Bernad established VINAMERICAS to represent a group of extraordinary wine producers from Spain. Since then, VINAMERICAS' portfolio has expanded to include hundreds of quality brands from Europe and South America
This evening, we’re going to concentrate on the portfolio’s core sector, Spanish wine selections. I’ve already sampled many of these wines at recent trade shows held by its Michigan distributor, Woodberry Wine. We’ll have a cream of the crop range of my favorites. The importer’s Marketing Manager, Andrew Pilgrim, will lead the presentation.
As per my customary practice, I’ll get samples to Chef/Proprietor Brandon Johns in advance of the event for the purpose of menu conception. Stay tuned for menu posting and email.
