More than 400 Spanish and international wines will be showcased at the first SUR Wines & Gourmet show, which is being organised by SUR and its gastronomy supplement Malaga en la Mesa, in conjunction with Grupo La Reserva. It will take place on 25 and 26 March from midday to 8pm, at the Pórtico de Velázquez restaurant in Malaga.

Different wineries, companies and distributors have taken stands at the show and will display their exclusive and unique varieties of wine and gourmet products, mainly to other professionals in the sector. Anyone interested in registering to attend the event can apply via the website www.surwinesgourmet.es.

However, this event has not only been organised with professionals in mind. The general public can also attend, and single-day tickets cost 20 euros. These are available via Oferplan (https://oferplan.diariosur.es) or from the event website given above, and numbers are limited.

Those tickets give visitors access to the fair and what is on offer.
