Wines of Spain & Portugal
The wine regions of the Iberian Peninsula (the term for both Spain and Portugal) tends to be more arid and warmer than regions further to the north in France. For decades and centuries the wines have been rustic. Recent years have seen exciting vibrant modern winemaking. There is a diversity of region and variety. The climate makes many Iberian styles very comparable to the styles of wine possible in many parts of Australia. In Australia we are familiar with Tempranillo, and Grenache. This class will look at a few of the unusual Spanish Varietals as well
Spain is also the home of Albarino, Godello and Verdelho. Madiera is part of Portugal. This is a wonderful opportunity to taste some truly rare and exciting wines.
