Spain’s wet Atlantic north west has its own unique character and doesn’t reflect the stereotypical image of Spain. It’s closer to northern Portugal than to Madrid, the dialect spoken is gallego, which bears resemblance to Portuguese, and the use of bagpipes in their folk music reflects their ancient Celtic heritage. Furthermore, the climate is also distinctly different from the rest of the country: cool, wet and verdant. We will explore these distinctive wines: from the bracingly refreshing Albariños of Rias Baixas to the elegantly textured reds of Ribera Sacra and Ribeiro. We will taste close to twenty wines to give a full picture of the region and cost of admission includes hors d’oeuvres.
