Spanish Wine Experience

Nov 30, 2017

This week something completely unexpected for Roque and Luke. They head to the flat humid lands in the deep southeast of the country with a bottle from DO Condado de Huelva. They share a bottle of Letrado from Bodegas Iglesias and discuss this new region, new wine style and new grape. They also shares ideas...

This week Roque and Luke head back to the realm of the Vinos de Pago, but this time to a small microclimate tucked away in the south of Navarra: Pago de Cirsus, DO Pago Finca Bolandín. They chat food pairings for Thanksgiving and blather on about glasses. Expect the usual levels of geekery and stupidity.

This week, as Madrid descends into winter, Roque and Luke head northwest back to Galicia to pick up their last DO there: DO Ribeiro. A positively sexy bottle of Pazo Tizón Extramundi white wine. Amid nonsense, the pair chat pairings with grilled food and why the Spaniards seems to drink more beer than vino!

This week sees Roque and Luke flying back to the Balearic Islands to guzzle down a bottle of DO Binissalem-Mallorca wine. They pop open a white by Jaume de Puntiró, made with an interesting local varietal. Amidst geeky chat they also explain the rules of the new SWE drinking game!

Today Roque and Luke travel to DO Alella, back to Catalan lands, where they will discover the red wine Parvas Syrah, from Bodegas Alta Alella. The perfect occasion to answer some questions that had been left unanswered, besides saying a few stupidities and nonsense.
