ExpoVino convention invites Costa Ricans to taste the world's wines

The ExpoVino wine convention opens to the public Thursday and Friday in Belén, just west of San José, with diverse samplings of the finest wines available in Costa Rica, imported from Chile, Argentina, the United States, Spain, Italy and even Germany.

“Ticos love Chilean wine, but they also like to discover new flavors,” said Karl Hempel, director of ExpoVino. “We want to emphasize that the experience here is to discover flavors, discover new wines and above all discover good value in wines.”

For $65 (with a 20 percent discount if you book in advance with a Banco Nacional card), visitors can taste all exhibitors’ wines, in addition to meats and cheeses from a variety of Costa Rican companies.

If you like wine so much that you have to taste them all, you might want to take a taxi.
