Wine and Tapas: World Grapes in Spain



Cambridge Wine Merchants and ¡Qué rico! Tapas are very happy to launch another edition of the popular Wine and Tapas Tastings! We started this series of tastings three years ago with the aim of widening knowledge about Spanish wines and the Spanish gastronomy. This year, our goal is the same but we event want to go a bit ahead and we have customized new tastings that will surprise you.

We are keeping the most popular wine tastings from very well-known regions in Spain and we have added two new wine tastings that we hope you will enjoy them. They are focused on the grapes rather than in the "terroir"; so we will taste how Spanish grapes taste in other parts of the world where they are being grown and how grapes from other countries are adding a special "bouque" to the Spanish wines.
Save these dates: 
13th November: World grapes in Spain
The Wine Tastings include a Tapas menu where each wine is matched with a traditional Spanish tapa from the regions we are about. The idea is to show the diversity and wealth of the Spanish cuisine, how different it is in each region and show the quality of the Spanish products.
All the Wine and Tapas Tastings are held at Cambridge Wine Merchants Cherry Hinton Branch (163 Cherry Hinton Rd, Cambridge CB1 7BX map) at 7 pm.
There will be a vegetarian option you can ask for. Due to the nature of the event, we will do our best to accommodate allergy dietary requirements when possible or we will offer an alternative dish. Please let us know in advance of the event as we can not accommodate dietary requirements on the night.

Tickets are £37.50 per person, including 5 Tapas and 5 Wines
