SIP Summer in Spain: Vino Blanco (White Wine)


With Elizabeth Hans McCrone

Join wine educators in this highly interactive online wine tasting and education series. Get social, meet new people, learn about, and taste wine from the comfort of your own home! You must have the Zoom video conferencing application downloaded on your desktop or smart device to participate in the class.

Cava means cave in Spanish – and it’s also the name of the wildly popular Spanish sparkling wine made primarily from white wine grapes indigenous to the country. Join us for an exploration of Penedès and Rías Baixas, the two coastal regions famous for Albariño and Cava – and the tapas to pair with them!
