8 revolutionary Spanish wines + 6 course banquet + 1 incredible night
THE REVOLUTION IS COMING! After decades of grappling with an identity crisis, Spanish wines are making a come back in a very big way. Journey with us as we take you through some of Spain’s top producers from the ‘classics’ to the ‘modern’ generation of winemakers who are making some of the most interesting wines with an authentic sense of place.
Let us introduce you to the pioneers of the Spanish wine revolution like Tondonia and Muga. With a history going back to 1877 and 1932, these producers have withstood the test of time due to their dedication to producing high quality, terroir driven wines. But there is also an exciting new wave of young winemakers rebuilding Spain’s wine image. In a place where mass produced wines are the norm and growers rarely ever bottle their own wines the move towards artisanal roots of winemaking is a revelation. Let us take you beyond Rioja, to the rugged landscape of Ribera del Duero and the mountainous Priorat, a region which has gone from obscurity to being the benchmark of a great Spanish wine in barely 15 years. From Alvaro Palacios who was one of the original 5 pioneers who brought Priorat to greatness to the Danish winemaker Peter Sisseck, creator of Pingus, which has since set the standard for excellence in Spanish wine.
Immerse yourself in the wines and stories of these remarkable producers that are changing the Spanish wine landscape one glass at a time. Enjoy eight hand selected Spanish wines over a six course banquet while we tell you their incredible story of revolution.

"Absolutely loved the event last night. Great selection of diverse samples from a single region! It was both surprising and refreshing. Attila made the event too with his stories and anecdotes. He clearly has a wealth of information! Really looking forward to the next one. The Three Kings will be tantalising." Daniel
"Thank you for making tonight not boring!" - Steve
"I have now been to 2 of your wonderful wine dinners – ‘Noir’ and ‘You say Wine, I say Vino’. They were fabulous nights.
Not only are you great hosts but Attila is a great MC and wine expert. Your evenings provide a no-nonsense story behind every wine so we are truly learning something and appreciating the true craft of wine making. I love the line that “This wine will change your life…..” because it is also about understanding the wine maker and the passion behind the wine that makes every wine unique. You are discerning in your selections and I appreciate the effort which you go to in trying to procure the rare wine vintages you provide. I have enjoyed every wine you have selected so far.
Thank you for your fabulous wine evenings. I will absolutely go to more and highly recommend this to anyone who wants a thoroughly interesting and enjoyable evening. -Sarah"
