Spanish Wines & Tapas Pairing Workshop (SOUTHAMPTON)
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.
This particular workshop is all about trying to find the ideal match between each carefully selected Spanish nibble and specifically chosen Spanish wine. 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.
Spain produces amazing quality wine at the moment. But Spanish wine can be intimidating for beginners due to the unfamiliar names — it's more Tempranillo & Albarino than Merlot and Chardonnay. But the secret to drinking Spanish is… it's all about the food!
There are some general food & wine pairing guidelines you may find helpful when selecting a wine to enhance your meal, all of which will be studied and tested during this tasting! We'll put the theory into practice by pairing our 5 chosen wines with 8 very carefully selected Spanish nibbles, and deliberate which pairing works best for us. What fun!
Indeed, those 5 carefully selected wines will be served alongside mouth-watering spanish-style nibbles, such as spicy chorizo, Serano ham, manchego cheese, iberico cheese, fresh tomatoes on the vine, sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil, white anchovies and/or other delightful finger foods, to enhance all the rich flavours in your chosen wines.
This tasting includes: 5 wines sourced locally so you can find them easily if you like them, 8 tapas per person, full tasting notes to take away with you, use of 5 professional ISO tastings glasses per person.
