From the 18th to the 21st of March 2016 took place one of the major annual events of the world of wine in Spain: the Bacchus
This event, which is organized by the Spanish Association of wine connoisseurs (Unión Española de Catadores
), is the only one which is recognized by the International Organisation of Vines and Wines (OIV
), and represents one of the most independent and most open competitions taking place at the moment, also due to the high professional qualification of the more than 80 wine experts which form the Jury, starting with Masters of Wine
and Masters Sommelier
, through recognized wine professionals
, to experienced specialized journalists
In this edition more than 1,500 Wine tastings

Among the awarded we can highlight the Don Px Convento Selección 1931
(Great Golden Bacchus), a "related" wine of the Don PX Convento Selección 1946
