Insane For Spain! - Big Wines, Little Bites
Spanish wine is red hot these days, featuring bright whites, macho reds and stylish values from north to south. We'll serve up the range: super-value sparkling Cava plus modern whites perfectly designed for traditional tapas. Reds include aged Rioja classics versus modern styles, up-and-comer Ribera and more surprises--with pairings demonstrating how the wines improve with gutsy Spanish dishes.
In an evening dedicated to bold flavors and exploration, Uncorked hosts you for the best of Spain's dynamic wine and food offerings. Includes eight Spanish wines, five specially prepared tapas-style food pairings and an entertaining group for chatting about your favorites.
While insanity might be slightly too strong, our 24 guests went politely crazy for the right-on-the-money Spanish wine and food lineup:
- The glowing Green Olive Tapenade tapa with a responsible touch of garlic and anchovy was a hit with little-known modern Spanish white Albariño.
- The smokey smackdown of rustic Chorizo & Peppers on Chickpeas was the night's runaway favorite. Just the right amount of spice and toothiness to hang in with an oaky, fruity and quaffable Calatayud red.
