As regions such as Rioja and Cava steal the limelight all other the wonderful areas are often over-shadowed and over-looked by UK consumers. These regions in the North include Rias Baixas for the fruit-driven Albarino variety, Rueda for aromatic Verdejo and Sauvignon Blanc, Toro and Navarra for fleshy and alcoholic reds (and rosés) and the most promising Ribera del Duero for wonderful Tempranillo. Elsewhere we will discover the famous Priorat district for structured and wines for maturation (this one the Spanish try to keep for themselves!)
We will also focus on the wonderful wines from Portugal such as Vinho Verde and Dao, to name a few.
We will be tasting x6 different wines.
This event is also part of the Four Week Tour of Europe
