Alimentaria 2010: How to make the best of a wine fair...

This is the first of my Alimentaria 2010 posts, following on from an excellent trip to Barcelona for this massive food and wine fair. In this short video, I asked three people (a newbie to this kind of fair, an old hand and a someone who had a stand there) to give their advice to anyone wishing to sample the delights of such an event...

  • Disclaimer Believeing as I do in complete transparency, I must add that the majority of my expenses during the fair (including transport) were paid-for by the Catalan Institute for Wine and Life ( and Freixenet ( I'll leave readers to judge my level of bias.

    I should also add that I probably owe Ryan and Gabriella Opaz of Catavino and Andre Ribeirinho of Adegga several coffees and a breakfast between them.

    Fantastic video Olli! I'm really impressed, though I'm not sure if it's because you actually disclosed the handful of coffees bought or the fact that no one could actually eat jamon at Alimentaria - though several tweets would argue the contrary :)
