This wine tasting focuses on one of Spain’s top regions, Ribera del Duero, home to some of the most famous wines in Spain. For those who like hearty red wines, this should be a great event!
As the name suggests, Ribera del Duero lies along the Duero river between the cities of Burgos and Valladolid in northern Spain.
The pioneering Ribera del Duero house of Vega Sicilia established a characteristic style for the region, using the native Tempranillo grape alongside Bordeaux grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Many houses today follow the Vega Sicilia formula, others prefer pure Tempranillo.
We will try both pure Tempranillo and blended styles to try to do justice to these elegant wines. One of the highlights will be a new arrival, Dominio Basconcillos Viña Magna Reserva 2011, which got 95 points from the Wine Spectator.
