The Wines of Spain

6th October 2011 in the fabulous Cellar Room under The Old Ship Hotel in Brighton


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.
