Spain, UAE and Cuba Move On to the Habanosommelier Finale


23/02/2011

Sommeliers Maria Teresa Perez Tapia, from Spain; Rajan Rengasami, from the United Arab Emirates, and Juan Jesus Machin, from Cuba, will vie at the grand finale of the Habanosommelier Contest slated for this Friday.

These were the winners of the preliminary round of this anticipated event within the Habano Festival that this time around also gathered competitors from Argentina, Chile, Mexico and Russia.

The contest is widely acclaimed in countries where the famous Cuban cigars are marketed, given the ever-growing number of aficionados that demand professional assistance from a sommelier when it comes to handpicking a habano.
