TASTINGS, we got 'em! If you're curious to see how well great Rioja ages, please join us for our final Vibrant Rioja in-store tastings of the year in San Francisco and Redwood City.
Vibrant Rioja Part III: San Francisco - Thursday 11/1 (5-6:30pm) $5
Vibrant Rioja Part III: Redwood City - Friday 11/2 (5-6:30pm) $5
We've got a fistful of Lopez de Heredia Tondonia for both of these...the whites. See how the 1996 Blanco Reserva and the 1991 Blanco Gran Reserva are showing. We will also be featuring the lovely 1995's from Ontañon, a reserva and gran reserva. I won't overemphasize the point, but for anyone who has tasted any of these will tell you, $5 to try these four wines is a steal.
Also, for all of you who live and/or work in SF, please join us for what promises to be a fun Rioja tasting with our friends at 18 Reasons (3674 18th St) on Friday 11/9 from 6-8pm. There will be some cheese and other Spanish nibbles while you enjoy wines from Peciña, Remelluri (yes, including the vaunted white!) and others. Twelve great wines and snacks for $15. All killer no filler, as they say. Spanish wine importer/local celebrity José Pastor may even make an appeance. It's going to be fun.
Alright, gotta go, too much going on! Hope to see you at one or more of these tastings.
