MAGNIFICAT, the professional event promoted since 2014 by Juvé & Camps and the distributor Primeras Marcas, was held today, June 7, 2022, together with more than 1,800 professionals from the sector. A meeting that has brought together large wineries, as well as sommeliers, buyers, experts, journalists and critics from the national and international wine scene in which they have not only been able to enjoy masterful tastings and an exceptional level of wines, but also celebrate the centenary of the historic house at its headquarters in Espiells (Sant Sadurní d’Anoia).
Meritxell Juvé, 4th generation and CEO of Juvé & Camps, has stated that “opening the doors of our house to coincide with our centenary celebrations with this level of participation and hand in hand with these great wineries, has been a true privilege. Not only have we been surrounded by great friends, but we have also been able to enjoy the quality and excellence of the wines and sparkling wines that they all produce”.
For his part, the General Manager of Primeras Marcas, Philippe Eberlé, highlighted that “in this fourth edition of MAGNIFICAT we have been able to highlight the wine diversity of Spain and the rest of the world, and the value of our country’s gastronomy, that positively favors the world of wine. We have been working with a good part of the wineries present for more than 40 years and it has been a great success, with winemakers who have come from all over Europe”.
The day has had an exclusive program of first-class tastings whose places were sold out in less than thirty minutes from its opening. Châteaux Margaux, one of the most legendary houses in Bordeaux, presented by MW Álvaro Ribalta; tastings given by Markus Molitor and Gunter Küntsler, two of the most renowned producers in Germany; a tour of the great Italian wines of Tuscany, given by one of the most significant firms in Italy, Gaja; and a journey through the Grenache through some of its best winemakers worldwide, from M.
