Event description
Taste 8 excellent, full bodied red wines from one, if not the best wine regions in Spain, RIBERA DEL DUERO.

About this Event

Spain is best known for Rioja, however, it is made up of 60 DOs and one of the very best is Ribera del Duero. We'll taste 8 different red wines of different vintages from five different producers. The wines will come from from Viña Sastre, Bodegas Alonso del Yerro, Conde San Cristobal, Viña Gormaz and Altos del Terral, the private project of the wine maker of Pago de los Capellanes. The Experience will take place in the Marriot Malta Hotel (previously the Meridien) as will the food. The hotel will have only opened one week earlier!

The wines we will be tasting are:

  1. Viña Gormaz Roble
  2. Viña Sastre Crianza 2015
  3. Altos del Terral Crianza 2015
  4. Conde San Cristobal 2015
  5. Alonso del Yerro 2013
  6. Maria
  7. Altos del Terral T1 2009
  8. Cuvee Julia 2011

If you want any for your Christmas lunch, you will be able to order after the event for delivery before Christmas.

Please do bare in mind that we will be tasting only red wines on this occasion and all will be using the Tempranillo grape variety.

Tempranillo (also known as Ull de Llebre, Cencibel, Tinto Fino and Tinta del Pais in Spain, Aragonez or Tinta Roriz in Portugal, and several other synonyms elsewhere) is a black grape variety widely grown to make full-bodied red wines in its native Spain.

Tempranillo is an early ripening variety that tends to thrive in chalky vineyard soils such as those of the Ribera del Duero region of Spain.
