World of Wine: Explore Spain and Portugal!

It’s time to take a closer look at Iberian wine-making! There are so many changes going on in Spain and Portugal, these two countries have increasingly grabbed attention in the wine world.

£35

There is more to Portugal than just Port! The cool areas on the northwest coast produce some intriguing white wines.

While in the Douro Valley they have been exploiting the Port grapes to make robust, ripe, chocolatey still wines – generally amoungst Europe’s best value reds!

And in the south, we find Ribetajo, Alentejo, and the Algarve, all capable of producing interesting and complex wines.

Spain also makes some interesting white wines such as fragrant Albarino and Godelllo from Galicia, with peachy soft juiciness reminiscent of a Chardonnay balanced by the refreshing finish of a Sauvignon Blanc.

And when it comes to reds does Rioja still rule the roost or can the regions of Ribera del Duero, Priorato, Bierzo, or Jumilla knock it off its perch?

(Note, this evening is part of our core 8-week course – book all 8 evenings and save £55! And it’s flexible, so if you have to skip an evening you can pick it up next time it runs).

This evening is suitable for all levels of wine knowledge!

This event will include a tasting of six carefully selected wines, full wine notes & handouts, and a 2-hour interactive presentation, with Q&A, led by our wine tutor.
