Table Wine Asheville: Tempranillo Wine Class

Wine 101: Understanding Tempranillo - Thursday, August 22nd., 2013 - 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

It’s another seated and educational tasting in the Table Wine classroom, and this time we’re going to focus entirely on Tempranillo. The grape grows in a number of regions throughout the world, but it reaches its pinnacle of quality in Spain, and that’s where we’ll focus our attention for the night. The Spanish regions of Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Toro are three of the most famous for Tempranillo production, and each produces a wine with its own distinct personality. From light, elegant and complex wines to rich, muscular and full bodied ones, we’ll taste our way through the world of Tempranillo, and you’ll leave the store with a better understanding of the grape and the wines it produces. I would be remiss not to mention that we’ll end the class with a taste of the 2010 Pingus Ribera del Duero “Psi”……..simply put, we’ll end the tasting with a wine from one of the top Tempranillo producers in the world.
