This is the wine tasting class that gives you a glimpse into the wonderful world of Spanish Wine.

I intend to lead you through the regions, highlighting the commercially significant wines, discussing what makes each unique whilst tasting wines.

Also one of my passions is the "when to drink" session where we get to explore the thinking behind the wine and how it is to be applied, for example, Rioja , when to drink -  with who, when, what, why and where- best friend, loved ones, special occasions, it is unique, eat it with food, great restaurant.

We will be looking at:

Over view of Spanish wine history and industry

Location, geology, geography and climate

Overview of the main commercial regions

Main Grape varieties

Main styles – Modern versus traditional, Food friendly, neutral to complex

When to drink - with who, when, what, why and where

The wines will come from these regions, which I think gives us a very good range across Spain:

Rioja; Priorat; Ribera del Duero; Rias Baixas; Toro; Bierzo; Jumilla; Jerez
