Starting with a contextualization on the wine tourism situation at present, the event will help tourism professionals know first hand the high level and potential of wine tourism in Spain, making clear its character of experiential and collaborative product, result of the union of the prestige of the Denominations of Origin, of the know-how of the wineries of their areas and of the collaboration of multiple agents of the territory: local administrations, hostelry establishments and other private initiatives.

Besides will be approached keys by which wine tourism can be considered a powerful tool to combat depopulation, boosting the resources of rural areas, energizing and contributing to the preservation of its historical-artistic, gastronomic and natural heritage and attracting investment and economic resources to the rural environment.
