Insider’s Spanish Red Wine


Mark is here with a comprehensive class designed to help to you choose Spanish reds like a pro.

No country offers more pleasure for the money than Spain, but the savvy wine lovers benefit from a framework for enjoying its variety of red wine styles. We will take off for the classic regions of Rioja and Ribera del Duero, explore the exciting slopes of Priorat, and delve into rediscovered regions such as Ribeira Sacra, Bierzo, and Terra Alta. We will also consider issues such as modern winemaking vs. traditional winemaking, ageworthiness, the perception of quality, old vine garnacha and other trends. And we will cover sensory evaluation techniques, decoding the label, and optimal food pairings.

Moreover, if you’ve ever been to one of Mark’s presentations, you know it is brimming with humor and his trademark “nuggets” of useful insider information that you won’t find anywhere else.

The cost of this class is $55 per household, and if you want to taste along with Mark, an optional Bevinars wine kit is now available to purchase at
