Join us as we taste a selection of fantastic wines of Spain that are the buzz-words in the wine industry at the moment. At the core of this area we find the classic Rioja joined by the youthful Navarra. To the South we find the mountainous and high-class Ribera del Duero (commanding the highest prices in Spain!) district, with the racy Toro and aromatic Rueda areas in close proximity. On the Galician coast we find Rias Baixas were some of Spain's most distinguished whites are found.
The tasting kicks off with the great whites we can find in this great wine country. Albarino, Spain's high quality white grape variety from Rias Baixas, is the ideal place to begin developing the tasting further with Verdejo and Sauvignon Blanc whites from Rueda and fruit-bomb Roses from Navarra. The final part of the tasting pitches the old-firm classic region of Rioja against the region of Ribera del Duero which is close to knocking Rioja of the podium for first place - we'll discover if it in fact it does rule the roost. Rioja versus Ribera - both made from Tempranillo and Garnacha - the showdown commences ... so join a tasting to discover the delights are found in 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 mainly affordable.
