Hijos de Rivera joins the 20th anniversary of Xantar
On its twentieth anniversary, we are once again supporting the Salón Internacional de Turismo Gastronómico Xantar (International Gastronomy Tourism Fair, Xantar) to showcase our product portfolio, which we will present through a packed activity calendar.
Yet another year, from 6-10 February, Expourense will become the epicenter of gastronomy in Galicia with the celebration of the Salón Internacional de Turismo Gastronómico Xantar, which is celebrating its twentieth anniversary this year with the most international activity programme to date, bringing together renowned chefs from 8 different countries to offer live cooking workshops.
This is the only international Gastronomy Tourism fair in Spain that, in its 19 year history, has been adding value to quality agro-food products, development and professional service, becoming a reference for the best wine and gastronomy destinations.
At Hijos de Rivera, we will once again use this context to offer a complete multi-product stand from where to present our products to the public. Tastings and talks are just a couple of the activities that we will offer on our stand throughout the five days of the Xantar fair, allowing visitors to discover our products first hand.
