Spain (& touch of Portugal)
Spain is a great country. Full of wine. Full of culture. Full of life. Full of colour.
For this wine dinner we are featuring Casa Rojo winery, founded by oenologists & husband & wife team of José Luis Gómez & Laura Muñoz-Rojo.
Their passion for native wine grapes & their desire to produce excellent wines have brought them to different corners of Spain, such as Galicia facing the North Atlantic ocean, ideal for white wines, Ribera del Duero where the climatic attributes makes it known as the land of “Fire and the Ice” & the south bordering the Mediterranean where poor limestone & clay soils creates an extremely dry climate well suited to bigger reds: Wines that smell of pine trees & rosemary.
