The Wines of Spain and Portugal
Demonstration Class | Wine Tastings & Wine Nibbles
Kerry Lesh, CWS

Class Description:

Each wine-growing area of the world has its own style and characteristics. Join professional wine educator Kerri Lesh, CSW (Certified Specialist of Wine, Society of Wine Educators)  who will lead you on a “stay-cation” that will transport and educate you on the wines of Spain & Portugal.  You'll begin class with a Cava tasting, the beautiful sparkling Spanish wine, then you'll learn about and explore some of the other amazing wines peculiar to these wine-growing regions such as Ribera del Duero, the Basque Country, the famous region of Rioja and more.  Ever experienced a Portuguese Vinho Verde?  Wait till you do! It is also customary to enjoy small bites along with the wines, so there will be some wine nibbles to accompany the wine tastings.  Be prepared to take lots of notes as you learn from tonight's knowledgeable wine expert.
