After decades of grappling with what some call an “identity crisis”, Spanish wines are making a splash in a very big way. But don’t call it a comeback... because it’s a revolution.
Journey with us as we take you through some of Spain’s top producers from the new (or ‘modern’) generation of winemakers who are making wines with an authentic sense of place that are among the most interesting in the world.
Let us introduce you to the pioneers of this Spanish wine revolution through four award-winning wines:
- Rafael Palacios, Louro // 92-points, Robert Parker
- Comando G, La Bruja de Rozas // 92-points, Robert Parker
- 4Kilos, 12 Volts // 91-points, Robert Parker
- Negre Franc, Cellers Pardas // 89-points, Robert Parker
Working with abandoned old vine plots these new generation producers are dedicated to using hand-harvesting and organic viticulture to create high quality, minimal intervention, terroir-driven wines. In a place where mass-produced wines are the norm and growers rarely ever bottle themselves, this “back-to-the-basics” approach marrying artisanal farming and winemaking is truly revolutionary.
Let us take you beyond Rioja, to the rugged landscape of the Gredos Mountains and the mountainous Galicia, both of which have gone from near obscurity to being the benchmark sites of great Spanish wine in just 10 short years.
Immerse yourself in the wines and stories of these remarkable producers that are changing the Spanish wine landscape one glass at a time. Enjoy four carefully-selected Spanish wines over a five-course paired tapas menu from Executive Chef Ramon Simarro while we tell you this incredible story of revolution.
