Event Description

It's time to take a closer look at Iberian wine-making! Old-vine Garnacha from Priorat, a wine with leathery, spicy, dark fruity depths to rival anything made over the border in Chateauneuf Du Pape (where the French harvest the same grape, which they call Grenache). Fragrant Albarino from Galicia, with a peachy soft juiciness reminiscent of Chardonnay, balanced by the crisp finish of a Sauvignon Blanc. With new-wave winemakers taking advantage of Spain's wealth of original grape varieties and old vineyards, there has never been a better time to get to know Spanish wine.

Over the border in Portugal we will taste Touriga Nacional, the finest of the grape varieties used for Port, as a regular table wine. With its warming spice and velvety and rich texture, this is a grape variety you will want to return to again and again!

 

All tastings include; minimum of 6 wines sourced locally so you can find them easily if you like them, use of professional tastings glasses, and nibbles.
