When we think of Spanish red wines we often look to Rioja and Tempranillo but there is so much more to explore in terms of traditions in wine production, appellations with indigenous character and perhaps the best values in the world! Great varieties like Garnacha (AKA Grenache) and Monastrell yield bold wines of great intensity and the Spanish Mediterranean Coast provides winemakers with the moderating influence of the Mediterranean Sea as well as high altitudes from the Pyrenees and the Plateau. In this seminar we will taste and discuss robust red wines with great generosity from Penedes near Barcelona down the coast to Jumilla. Wine Associate Mario Pena will be choosing the wines as well as leading the class. (Class Level: Intermediate)
