Put on your Gourmand hats ladies and gents!
Beautiful Spain is more than Paella, Sherry, Flamenco, and Bulls.
In an effort to elevate our knowledge of classic pairings, the Academia brings you this multi-course regional Spanish paired tasting dinner, touching on the historical importance of each of the wine regions, and why each wine pairing is chosen for the culinary dishes.
You'll get to try some boutique producers, organic and biodynamic farming, wines of production method as late harvest, sparkling, naturally frizzante, avant garde regional methods, and some unique varieties, plus a spirit or two!
We have 11 courses total: an aperitif, 9 dishes with 11 wines plus a digestif!
Limit to the first 6 guests that can confirm attendance.
