Wednesday the 19th - The Iberian Peninsula $15
The Iberian Penninsula, which includes Spain and Portugal (as well as a tiny town of a country named Andorra), is known for some of the grandest of dry whites and reds as well as some beautiful dessert wines. Coming from countries that are reknown for the wide range of fare served, it's not suprising that the wines from this region are not only delicious all by their lonesome but also happen to be some of the greatest food wines in the world. Join us as we taste through the wine of Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Rias Baixas, the Dao, as well as throwing in a Madeira or Port (it just wouldn't be right to pass over these beauties). Mmmm...we're already getting thirsty...and hungry for that matter!
