From Snooth’s web site:
It’s time for another Snooth Virtual Tasting. This time around we will be exploring the Wines of Garnacha. One of the world’s oldest and most widely planted wine grapes, its main production is located in Eastern Spain, Southern France (where it is also known as “Grenache”) and Italy. By controlling yields, taking advantage of the old vines and applying modern techniques in combination with old traditions, they are producing wines with exceptional character and concentration.
Join us in real time on Friday, September 18th as we learn more about Wines of Garnacha and sample the spectacular wines this region has to offer. Master Sommelier, Corkbuzz owner and friend of Snooth, Laura Maniec will be joined by Best Spanish Sommelier 2014, Guillermo Cruz who is also the Sommelier for the 6th best restaurant of the world, Mugaritz located in San Sebastian, Spain. Indulge in an hour long taste-along session with them, delving into the secrets of Garnacha with the following fabulous wines:
- Beso de Vino Old Vine Garnacha 2014
- Las Rocas Garnacha 2013
- Secastilla 2010
- Coto de Hayas Garnacha Centenaria 2013
