Wine and Tapas Evening (Hitchin)
We all know Rioja, but there is so much more to Spain – the fresh and crisp Albarino wines from Rias Baixas, full bodied reds from Ribera del Duero and the fantastically fashionable wines of Priorat, to name just three. And, of course, there’s Sherry. Andalucia in the south of Spain is the home both of Sherry (Jerez) and of tapas (Seville). In this tasting we will explore wine and sherry from Spain and see why sherry and tapas matching has become increasingly trendy in UK bars and restaurants. If you still believe that sherry is yesterday's tipple and that it should be kept in the sideboard for months, then this tasting will change your mind, as we try different styles such as Fino, Amontillado, Oloroso and a sweet PX.
And, where better to go for Tapas than the fabulous Los Reyes, in Hitchin. Los Reyes is Hitchin's first creative tapas restaurant and winner in the Independent Restaurant category at the 2017 Hertfordshire Food & Drink Awards. Specialising in tapas and Spanish wines, owner Damian Caldwell is one of the most highly regarded chefs in the county.
This wine tasting evening also makes a great gift voucher idea for only £50.00 maybe for Christmas, a birthday or other occasion. The evening includes seven different wines, tasting notes, tutored tasting and a substantial range of tapas dishes.
