I have some exciting news! Rockin Red Blog is heading to Basque Country! I have been invited to share the presentation I gave at Vinisud 2016 in Montpellier, France in February at the Polytechnic University of Valencia. It will be a quick trip. I am leaving tomorrow and returning Sunday. However, on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday I am going to be wined, dined, toured, and educated on Riojas Alavesa and Txakoli.
Thursday, July 8 will focus on Txakoli and the three existant appellations during the day. In the evening we will be transferred to Rioja Alavesa for dinner.
Friday, July 9 my presentation will take place at the Polytechnic University of Valencia on in Laguardia, the capital of Rioja Alavesa.
Saturday, July 10 is spent touring Rioja Alavesa: visiting towns, vineyards, wineries, etc.
It promises to be a great three days!
