Following a highly successful launch, D-Wine in Marbella opened its doors on 21st March to celebrate the experience of enjoying Spain’s best wines. Combining a wine shop, restaurant and lounge under one roof, the business has been built on a passion for wine and food and a wish to share the joy of drinking the finest wines at the peak of their perfection.
There are over 3,000 wines in the collection, which have been selected in association with world renowned wine critics José Peñin and Robert Parker and rank over 90 out of 100 on the Parker scale. There is also an exclusive ‘wine by the glass’ dispenser system, which provides the opportunity to taste at least 32 superb wines by the glass, specially selected by their team of expert sommeliers.
At the opening event, wine experts, local residents and the Mayor of Marbella Angeles Muñoz were full of praise for this new venture. Carlos González Sáez, Director of the leading guide to Spanish wines Guía Peñin commented, “This really is an impressive project and a massive challenge to pull together such a collection of wines and allow people to touch, see and taste wines that most people only read about in the guides. We are delighted to have been able to help create such an excellent collection.”
Jesus Luque, D-Wine’s Director added “I have been working in the wine business all my life but I never imagined such a fantastic collection of wines being brought together in one place – not even in my dreams. It’s so great to have the tasting machines to allow people to really experience the collection, experiment and try different Spanish wines without having to buy a whole bottle.”
Mayor of Marbella Angeles Muñoz gave her support for the project and her thanks for bringing it to Marbella. “I want to congratulate everyone involved in this great venture for creating one of the most amazing wine collections in Spain. Thank you for creating 40 jobs and investing in Marbella. Thank you for showcasing the best wines of Spain in this wonderful place – Marbella and their Mayor thank you!”
At the launch the owner and visionary behind the collection Oleg Gurkov thanked everyone for their collaboration in helping him realise his dream of launching D-Wine which is built on a passion for Spanish wine, a massive personal collection and three years searching for Spain’s best wines. He thanked the Town Hall for creating a good environment for business and foreign investment and announced the launch of D-Wine’s school for sommeliers on 1st April.
D-Wine is located in Centro Comercial Azalea, CN 340 km. 173, Marbella. The shop is open from 10.00-22.00 and the restaurant for lunch, dinner and drinks with tapas.
