WHERE Online! Tasting via Zoom (download the free APP here)
How well do you know your Spanish wine? Yes yes, there’s the much ballyhooed Rioja, but what about the rest?
I'll be sending you three lesser known beauties, along the lines of the following...
Let’s start with Cava. Often thought as the crass, un-classy cousin to Champagne. But guys, things have changed! If you’re not already on the Cava train, I think this tasting might just persuade you. Made in the same way as Champagne, but often without the diamond price tag – what’s not to love? Come and learn about it, taste it and decide for yourself.
And when it comes to white... are you familiar with white Rioja? One of my favourites! Often creamy, nutty, full bodied whites (good for any Chardonnay lover). What about the hero white grape of Spain – Albariño? It pairs beautifully with sea food and is one of the upcoming bang-on-trend grapes.
Us Brits do love a cheeky Rioja, but I’ll take you on a journey of another spectacular wine regions: maybe Jumilla or Ribera Del Duero to name a few, which produce reds as equally exciting, robust and rustic.
Sherry. Yes – I’m going there. Are you a lover? High five! Or are you a nay-sayer or a never-been-there-player? Then we need to talk. Sherry is fast returning to be one of the coolest and trendiest drinks of England, so if you’re not on board this is your chance to taste why people are going mad for it.
This evening is a diverse showcase of the amazing range of wines that Spain has to offer. Try 3 Spanish wines that you wouldn't usually grab off the shelf with 3 cheeses to pair up like French & Saunders.
Get involved with this exciting and delicious tasting, a perfect night in alone or as a larger household.

Let her entertain you with education about the wine regions, grapes and cheese pairings all served with a side of humour and a belly laugh. The Zoom tastings include a presentation, polls and break out rooms which will allow you to be interactive with Sophia and other guests, or, if you prefer, simply sit back and enjoy the presentation.
