Local Event Premier Host
There are few places in the world where more excitement is bubbling through a formerly stiff and structure wine culture than in Spain. Well known grapes like Garnacha and Tempranillo are popping up from new places. Formerly obscure grapes like Mencia, Bobal, Treixadura and Prieto Picudo are coming to the fore. And all eyes are turning to regions previously overlooked, like Ribeira Sacra, Sierra de Gredos, Manchuela and more. And even in more well-known places, winegrowing increasingly aims for freshness and winemaking holds oak influence in check.
In short, there’s a lot of delicious innovation going on in Spain these days, and we’re going to explore it! Join us on Thursday, March 16, as we take you beyond Albariño, white Rioja and Rueda with a tour of New Wave Spain. We'll have three complex and zesty whites and four bold, but still fresh and highly drinkable, reds, all available to taste, that showcase the innovative excitement of New Wave Spain!
