One of the joys of having a wine shop is working with a dedicated, passionate group of importers and distributors who specialize in independently owned, small production wineries that follow sustainable practices. It’s through these relationships that we discover new gems; learn about the producers, their farming practices, and winemaking methods; and in turn share those wines and stories with you.
For Wednesday’s tasting, we have a new selection of fantastic Spanish wines, ideal for everyday drinking, from importer Valkyrie Selections. Joining us will be one of our favorite representatives, Emily Kaplan, who will share the stories behind these delicious Spanish wines.
We’ll pour four wines: a refreshing Albariño from Rias Baixas in Galicia, a lively Getariako Txakolina from Basque country, a juicy Tempranillo from the lunar-landscaped Bardenas Reales Natural Park in Navarra, and a plush Grenache-Tempranillo blend from Montsant in the Priorat region.
