Save these dates in your diary!


1.- Sherry and tapas tasting - 21st February

We will start the trip in the South of Spain with a sherry tasting matched with tapas.

The tasting will consist on 5 different sherries and will be paired with 5 tapas, matching each sherry with a different dish.


Traditionally in Spain sherries were taken with serrano ham, chorizo or cheese but now chefs are working on new pairings, making the most of the diversity of sherry flavours, perfect to match with any kind of food.


2.- Wines and tapas from Aragon to celebrate St George’s Day - 22nd April


On April 22nd we will celebrate St George’s Day with a wine tasting from Aragon. The wines will be paired with traditional dishes from that region and surrounding regions like Navarra. It is our way to celebrate Saint George, the patron saint of both England and Aragon.


3.- East Coast (Catalonia and Valencia) - 28th June


In June we will travel to the East Coast of Spain. The wines and the tapas will remind you of summer, the sun and the holidays! From Catalonia to the south along Valencia, the East Coast has a fantastic variety of wines and the food is based on local products like rice, game and seafood.


4.- Wines from La Rioja - 12th September


In September the wine tasting will focus on La Rioja, probably the most well-known Spanish wines abroad. However, there is always something new to discover in terms of new wines, new brands, new blends. These magnificent wines will be paired with tapas from the same region, an area in Spain famous as well for its tapas and its rich gastronomy.


5.- North of Spain - 16th November


We will finish our trip in the North of Spain. We will have the last tasting of the year in November and the wines will cover all the regions that face the Cantabrian sea: Cantabria, Asturias and Galicia. The food will warm us up as this area, very cold in winter, is famous for its comfort food based on legumes, meat and fish.


Each tasting includes 5 wines and 5 tapas for £32.50 per person.
