Pouring wines in Bogota

Bogota Wine Expo: Expovinos 2016

It’s back again. Expovinos, Bogota’s yearly wine festival that gives you the chance to taste hundreds of wines under one roof. Get up close and personal with wines from Spain, Argentina, Portugal, Chile, Uruguay, United States, Italy, France, and Australia.

And for Spanish speakers, there is a daily program to educate you about every aspect of wine. Learn about wine growing areas in Argentina, Chile, Italy, Spain, and Uruguay. Listen to experts talk about wines such as Lambrusco, Cabernet, Malbec, Carmenere, Vermouth, Shiraz. Talk with representatives of vineyards and vineyard organizations.

Wine tasting in Bogota

There will also be a wide selection of wines that you can purchase to drink on the premises or take home. Of course, with all that wine around, you’ll need to eat. There will be places to buy a bite, as well as food trucks with quick snacks like pizza, Mexican, German sausages, salads, wraps and hamburgers.

In addition to the wine tastings and restaurants, there will be live music and dance shows (unfortunately, we haven’t been able to find a program for these events). Here’s a limited map that shows you the layout of the buildings so you know how to get around.
