Have you ever wanted to understand wine like a sommelier? These substantive and informative wine classes are perfect for the beginner looking to think like a pro, or an enthusiast looking to gain more masterful knowledge and wine tasting experience. Join the industry acclaimed, expert wine team of Barcelona Wine Bar as they reveal why these wines “taste the way they taste” with thought provoking facts about the regions, varietals, wine-making technique, terroir and history. Gain wine tasting experience and improve your own ability to decipher special distinctions in every wine you encounter as you explore four of Spain’s most essential red wine producing regions: Bierzo, Ribera del Duero, Priorat and Rioja
PRIORAT is extreme. With an intense Mediterranean sun, steep roman-cut terraces and unforgiving dark slate soils known as llicorella, everything about this region is challenging. The primary varietals are the indigenous Garnacha and Cariñena. These wines are practically heroic: intensely proud and concentrated in every way with stewed inky fruit and ripping tannins.
