Event Description

Attis is a winery owned by the Robustiano and Baldomer Fariña (pictured), brothers and third-generation grape growers in Rias Baixas. 

The Farina brothers joined with French oenologist Jean-François Hebrard to launch some very exciting Rias Baixas wines including a range of Atlantic reds and single-vineyard Albarino aged on lees, in oak barrels and even under the sea.

The winery owns 12.3 acres of vineyards with vines from 5 to 40-years-old. Thanks to the expertise of Jean François, Attis is now considered a cult winemaker producing groundbreaking wines. 

We will meet Jean-François, born in Bordeaux and raised by a wine-making family there. After making wine in top Bordeaux chateaux and consulting in other parts of France and Switzerland, he moved to Spain in 2001 initially becoming chief winemaker at Tinto Figuero in Ribera del Duero. His consulting expertise is now in high demand.

We will try a benchmark Albarino, a refreshing Godello and a limited edition Albarino aged in barrel and kept on lees. And we'll be asking Jean-François about his cult wines.

Book on this page for TWO or more people connecting to our online tasting. For ONE person please book here.

Simply book your spaces and we'll send a link for ordering the wines. We will also send instructions for joining Zoom from a desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile phone. Zoom is a very sociable medium for wine tasting and we can guarantee you'll have fun! Each session will last just over an hour.

Special case price is £60.32 (normal price £70.97 - 15% discount). Delivery is free in the Cambridge area or £8.99 elsewhere. You can book more than one online tasting and combine wine deliveries to spread the delivery charge.
