Discover Spain: North-East, East & Central
Join us as we discover the wine delights on the eastern coast & central regions of Spain. So much emphasis is given to Rioja in the UK, however regions such as Penedes, Valencia and Costers del Segre are now supplying us with fascinating wines that are high quality but also very affordable.
The tasting will start by discovering Cava the traditional-method sparkling wine that is produced on the limestone mountains and hills around the beautiful city of Barcelona. Penedes produces a whole host of intriguing varieties whilst the regions of Alicante and Valencia offer affordable styles using Tempranillo and Monastrell (Mourvedre in France). The tasting will also look at the emerging experimental zones of Somontano and Costers del Segre before finishing on the grand finale of Priorat (£25+), the rustic blockbuster red mainly made from Garnacha and Carinena (Carignan).
A great tasting to discover that there's more to Spanish wine than Rioja.
Big Wine to look forward to: Priorat (£25+)
