Spanish Wines & Tapas Evening (WINCHESTER)
Join us as we taste a selection of fantastic wines of Spain that are the buzz-words in the wine industry at the moment, served alongside mouth-watering platters of tapas and spanish-style amuse-bouches.
Pairing food with wine should be easy and fun, yet so many people become stressed at the idea of make a wine faux pas. Yet the best part about pairing food with wine is the experimentation and delights at finding a pairing that YOU enjoy. And that's exactly what this pairing workshop is all about ... putting the theory behind food & wine pairing rules into practice and discovering which food matches which wine and why!
Spain is the home to some of the world's greatest wines and is famous for its diverse and interesting range of regional cheeses, chorizos, cured hams, etc!
A full selection of these renowned Spamish produce will be enjoyed in this classic tasting evening. We will be tasting at least 8 Spanish classic tapas including white anchovies, manchego cheese, potato frittata, spicy chorizo, Serano ham, etc. Each nibble will be paired with 5 stunning wines from Spain, from a fresh, young Albarino to an oaked white Rioja and a Gran Reserva Rioja red, proving a truly memorable tasting evening.
Each tapas is carefully selected to be matched to a very specifically chosen Spanish wine in order to enhance your overall wine & food experience. We will be going through the rules behind pairing wine & food successfully, and then putting the theory into practice! How fun!!! ;-)
