Perhaps one of the most under-valued wine producing countries in the world, Spain is continuing to grow as a smart and dynamic wine super-power.

Anna Spooner of the Tastings Team is excited to bring this 45-minute overview to members in the style of her ‘Sip-Size’ events. We’ll work our way from the north to the south of the country, taking in a diverse range of styles from the white wines of the green northernly region of Rías Baixas, to the famed wines of Rioja and Ribero del Duero and finishing up in the southerly region of Jerez – the only place in the world where ‘sherry’ is produced.

Please note, we won’t be focusing on Rioja in this event, and will instead take more of an overview across the country. Should you wish also to hear more about Rioja specifically then we recommend joining our ‘Focus On’ session the following week, which can be found here.

For the Introduction to Spain Anna has selected three wines that give a good overview of the country and will be using all three throughout the course of the tasting to tell the story of Spain. We encourage you to buy one, two or even all three wines, though they are not essential to join the evening.

Our sip-size events are the ideal way to explore the world of wine from the comfort of your home. The 45-minute sessions are a friendly mix of wine education and evening entertainment presented by The Wine Society’s very own Tastings Team.

Each week a different topic is tackled from grape varieties to regions; wine styles and production methods but always ensuring that the session is suitable for all levels – only a love of wine or a thirst for a little more knowledge required. We’ll provide recommendations for three wines to taste alongside each event, but of course you’re welcome to join with any wine you choose – or even a cup of tea!
