27 February @ 20:00 - 22:00
Fire and Brimstone, dark earth and sulphur, magma and smoke. Volcanoes are not exactly what most people think of when their thoughts turn to Spain. Usually people think of dusty plains, the beautiful beaches, little white towns with cute plazas.
But we do have volcanic soil beneath our feet. And some of these lands make for interesting areas for viticulture. This week we want to look at four wines form four different areas that are volcanic in nature. Three of them come from the Canary Islands but we do have one wine from the peninsula too.
We shall be trying an off dry Malvasia-Moscatel blend from Lanzarote, a deliciously fruit-forward Listan Blanco from the Valle de Güímar, a peppy Syrah from Campo de Calatrava in La Mancha, and a fiery red from Tenerife.
Bermejo semi-dulce – DO Lanzarote
Brumas de Ayosa – DO Valle de Güímar
Quinta de Aves – VT Tierra de Castilla (Campo de Calatrava)
Benje – DO Ycoden-Daute-Isora
So this Thursday come for some explosive fun at Madrid & Darracott as we dive into the crater of volcanic wines.
