Gems from the Iberian Peninsula… Portugal and Spain
These two amazing countries share a border and more importantly, a passion for making wines that are distinctive and memorable at all price points! No other country in the last 15 years has elevated their quality and diversity of table wine than Portugal, both white and red. As more and more attention is paid to grape growing techniques and yields, quality has elevated resulting in wines that often taste like twice the price. For Spain, we will focus on the growing trend in white wine from Rioja, and the wonderfully expressive reds from Priorat, known for their world-class Grenache. We will explore regions and indigenous varietals from Portugal and Spain that are not as known and are making the biggest impact. I promise these wines will become part of your regular list of wines to drink more often.
