It’s an honour to be invited as a judge on the VIII Muestra de Bullas, the 8th annual DO Bullas Wine Competition! I’ve just received the programme for this two day event and I’m really looking forward to it: 2nd – 4th March 2015.
The event starts with a Tasting of DO Bullas Wines at the Mueso de Vino in Bullas where all competing Bodegas present their wares for the invitees to taste.
Next morning the Tasting Panel convenes at 10:00hrs for the competiton when all submitted wines will, of course, be tasted blind. Wines will be listed in various different categories – e.g. Young Red; Red Crianza; etc. All wines will be tasted and given scores by all the judges. These scores will then be collated and the winning wines in each of the categories will be known – but only to the members of the Consejo Regulador, the Regulating Committee.
There is a Gala Dinner in the evening at which the winners will be announced and the trophies presented.
As the only international judge to be invited, I’m especially honoured to be present and I’m really looking forward to it all!
