Wine show opens to the public Thursday

The nation’s major wine show, ExpoVino Costa Rica, opens to the public Thursday at the Centro de Eventos Pedregal west of San José.

This is a show that featured nearly 200 exhibitors with the emphasis on wines. But cheese and chocolates are included if past shows are any guide.

For a $65 entry fee, a visitor receives a cup and permission to sample wines that are on display.

The wines are expected to come from the U.S., Argentina, Chile and other world wine-growing centers. Exhibitors are paying from $700 to $1,800. The organizer is EK Consultores Internacional.

The show takes place once every two years, and this is the fifth edition. Hours are from 3 to 9 p.m. Those in the trade were to have a preview today.
