IBERIAN EXPLORATION – THE WINES OF SPAIN & PORTUGAL
October 9 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm£35.00
Join us for a joyous tasting of wines from Spain and Portugal, looking at our latest exciting discoveries. Spain is one of the most vibrant wine producing countries in the world, and produces not only superb value everyday drinking, but also serious age-worthy fine wines. Many of Spain’s under-the-radar wine regions have had renewed interest from a younger generation of winemakers who have their minds set on showing the world that Spain can produce so much more than Rioja. The wines of Portugal have always been highly regarded by those in the know but have really exploded into the public consciousness in the last couple of years. Their red wines in particular highlight that it is not just fortified wine in which they excel.
We’ll taste seven delicious wines, showcasing the huge breadth of styles produced across the 2 countries. With wines made from the Mencia or Monastrell grape varieites, as well as regions such as Alentejo in Southern Portugal, there are lots of exciting discoveries to be made. As always, this light-hearted yet informative tasting will also include a small food and wine pairing, to highlight the affinity these wines have with food. The tasting will last approximately two hours and is hosted by Loki’s in-house wine educator Paul.
