About the Event

Tempranillo is the great red grape of Spain, producing a variety of wine styles in regions around the country. Tempranillo wine typically features medium acidity, medium tannins and dark red color. Young, unoaked versions will be pleasantly fruity, with flavors of red fruits and jam. More complex versions, aged in oak – often American oak – will have vanilla, toast and meaty notes.

During this class we'll explore

  • Tempranillo from several key Spanish wine producing regions including Rioja, Toro & Ribera del Duero
  • Tempranillo Blanco is a thing, we'll try it
  • jump over to Portugal and sample Tinto Roriz to see the similarities the two countries shares.
