We tasted our way through some fantastic wines from Spain with our guests in the Cellars of the Old Ship Hotel. 

Here's a reminder of those we tasted:

Pasada Pastrana Manzanilla, Bodegas Hidalgo-La Gitana @ £13.95 a bottle

Cava Brut Reserva NV, René Barbier @ £9.00 a bottle

Conde de Valdemar Blanco 2010, Rioja @ £8.25 a bottle

Casal Caerio Albarino 2010, Rias Baixas @ £14.50 a bottle

Conde de Valdemar Crianza 2007, Rioja @ £12.25 a bottle

Ribero Tinto Meses 2009, Ribera del Duero @ £10.25 a bottle

Roda Reserva 2006, Bodegas Roda, Rioja @ £25.75 a bottle

Roda I 2006, Bodegas Roda, Rioja @ £45.50 a bottle

Pedro Ximenez Triana, Bodegas Hildago - La Gitana @ £15 a bottle

All of which showed beautifully!

The venue was superb and has a fantastic history dating right back to 1559, apparently it is haunted!

The Tapas were superb and beautifully presented - they complimented the wines wonderfully.  But as one of our clients pointed out - the salted almonds went well with each and every one of the wines.
