The history of winemaking in these two countries goes back way longer than you would imagine and even today, you can see the effects of this on current winemaking techniques and barrel aging. Join us as we taste 6 different wines, ranging between the extremely long-aged wines of Rioja, the intensely fortified wines of Portugal, and the bright and bubbly champagne of Spain (also known as Cava!) - plus a few other hidden gems from these two countries. You’re going to love it!

This is part 3 of a 4 part series that explores the major winemaking regions of Europe. Join us as we fly through the historic vineyards of France, the beautiful countryside of Italy, learn about the traditional winemaking techniques of Spain and Portugal, and finish with the many beautiful and high-quality wines from Germany and Austria.
