Add To Cart


Covering much of the Iberian Peninsula, from the French Pyrenees to the Andalucian coast, Spain is a country chock full of intense and expressive wines. Dominated by the “Meseta” or central plateau, Spain is perpetually under vine (most acreage in the world) and always striving to be better. In this class we focus exclusively on the northerly appellations, stretching from the Atlantic, to Basque country and into the Mediterranean. We will cover the aromatic whites of Galacia and Txakoli, the bright reds of Bierzo and Ribera del Duero, and the structured wines of Rioja and Priorat. Participants will gain an understanding of the major regions, grapes and wine production methodology which sets Spain apart in the world of wine. Join me for a closer look into these remarkable appellations.  

This class will be held at Perch Coffee House on 440 Grand Avenue. Metered street parking is available (meters shut off at 6PM) and there is some residential parking in the area. Please leave a little time to find a spot. Doors open at 5:30PM, so feel free to come in and ask for Paul.
