Description

Vega Sicilia Tasting

Just the thought of these six bottles of wine, open and ready to taste, is bound to give any wine aficionado goosebumps. Vega Sicilia is the most prestigious, awarded, and respected wines of Spain. Their range is incredible—from their new projects, such as the Rioja bodega partnership with Benjamin Rothschild, to their classic Ribera del Duero bottles that made them world famous, as well as the impressive Pintia de Toro and Alión.

This winery has maintained quality for a century, standing above the trends, producing excellent wine worthy of the fame year after year. It's the gold standard of Spanish wine—and even counts Winston Churchill among its fans.

    •    Tasting of six (6) Vega Sicilia wines
    •    Handbook guide of Spanish wine regions
    •    Finest Iberian ham, hand carved

This tasting will be an unforgettable tasting, a conversation among friends about the history of this famous winery and the current panorama of wine in Spain.
