A very special tasting of Spanish wines is scheduled for February in London. The so-called Viñateros tasting will be held on the 21st at the Tate Switch House, in Bankside, and will include a series of seminars covered all manner of topics, from native grape varieties and climate change to appellations. The main stars will be terroir-focused wines, of which there will be about 300, from 50 growers coming from more than 20 regions of Spain.
According to one of the organizers, the goal is to hold an event that differs greatly from generic tastings, offers very distinct wines, and which highlights some of the people who are responsible for the “Spanish wine revolution,” according to thedrinksbusiness.com. This “focused tasting” will enable attendees to learn a lot more and actually engage with the growers.
Participating growers include: Dominio del Bendito (Toro), Colet Vins (Penedès), 4 Kilos (Mallorca), Remelluri (Rioja), Domaines Lupier (Navarre), Coto de Gomariz (Ribeiro), Dominio del Urogallo (Cangas), Familia Nin-Ortiz (Priorat), Celler Comunica (Montsant), and Compañia de Vinos Telmo Rodriguez.
The event will highlight unique wines and the people responsible for them, in an effort to move away from the “generic tasting”
