Maria José Sevilla, director of Foods and Wines from Spain, said: "Spanish Wines continue to seduce UK palates and the offering from new emerging regions, alongside our well-established DOs, encourages consumers to explore the Spanish category further.

"There are a lot of exciting Spanish wines coming to the UK and we are looking forward to a great day of tasting."

The volume of Spanish wine sold in the UK has risen by more than a quarter since 2010, and Spain accounts for around 10% of all non-sparkling off-trade wine sales, according to data from Nielsen.

The Wines from Spain Trade Fair will take place from 10:30am to 6:00pm on Thursday, April 14 at London's Tobacco Dock.
