Spanish Wine Experience

We are back again, so soon, we know, with another one of our Perfect Spanish Wine Cellar pods. This time we have upped the price to 500€ so be prepared for longer lists and much fancier wines. This the cellar for the person who wants some of the finer things as well as more range than you'd get from 100€. Enjoy!

Spanish Wine Experience

Well look at that, we found another wine region for you guys! This one we have already tried and loved and have been selling in our shop. We just forgot we hadn't done a podcast! A tiny VT region in Navarra, 3 Riberas only has a handful of wineries. This is the most prestigious; a rosé project made by legendary winery Chivite in conjunction with top chef Arzak! Enjoy!

Spanish Wine Experience

Welcome to a new series on our podcast. As well as the usual wine region, weird grape and informative episodes, we are launching a new genre that is for certain price points what should you, and can you get, to prime your perfect Spanish wine cellar! This week, a tricky 100€. Neither Roque or Luke know the other's choice: fireworks ensue.

Spanish Wine Experience

Sorry for the delay! It's been a few weeks! Luke had horrendous allergies for over a week followed by some biblical food poisoning. But now the boys are back, and with a truly tiny far-flung VT region from Aragón: Ribera del Jiloca. To talk about the area, and all things Aragonés, they have two different bottles of red from Bodega Santo Tomás de Aquino. Cheers!

SWE Ep. 135 - Orange Wine show art SWE Ep. 135 - Orange Wine

Spanish Wine Experience

And now for something completely different... Orange Wine is very much in fashion these days in the wine world. But most people would never think of Spain as a bastion of this kookier style of vino. Today the boys sample an orange wine from Bodega de las Estrellas; talk about what's going on, why it's going on, and whether they are Fire, Earth, Wind or Water types... Intriguing right?

Spanish Wine Experience

We have to hand it to Roque and Luke; their sleuthing abilities are second to none. They've managed to locate another Vino de Pago - Dehesa del Carrizal - hiding out in the depths of the Toledo hills. They have a range of wines, but the boys have selected one of their favourite, and most-underrated of the big grapes, Petit Verdot. So enjoy!

SWE Ep. 133 - Weird Grapes: Graciano show art SWE Ep. 133 - Weird Grapes: Graciano

Spanish Wine Experience

Another week, another pod, another weird grape. Weird by certain standard anyway. There is a grape in La Rioja that 'some' people know, but maybe don't really know. A native of Rioja that was often hiding away in blends but more and more is being used to make fascinating and uniquely perfumed mono variety reds. Graciano! To talk about this grape the boys are lucky enough to sample a fancy bottle of Termón!

SWE Ep. 132 - Maridaje (food and wine pairing) show art SWE Ep. 132 - Maridaje (food and wine pairing)

Spanish Wine Experience

Time for something completely different. This week Roque and Luke want to focus less on a particular region and/or grape and instead talk both generally, scientifically, culturally, nationally and gastronomically about the idea of food and wine pairing. But with a Spanish bent. To aid them they tuck into various Galician conservas from Delgado Selecciones and pair them with a top Dominio O Secreto Albariño by Ruiz Clavijo.

Spanish Wine Experience

Another week and another exciting discovery. This time Roque and Luke enjoy a bottle of barrel-fermented Albariño, but not from the usual area. It's Galicia, but not as we know it. A tiny little Vino de la Tierra hiding in the northern fjords. The wine is Komokabras from Adega Entre Os Rios.

Spanish Wine Experience

Well, well, well, what's all this then? That's right, Roque and Luke discovered another one of Spain's 'top of the pyramid' hard-to-find Vino de Pago wines. This week it's the turn of Pago de los Balagueses, located in the interior of the Valencia region. They have a range of smashing wines and this week they're trying the delicious Garnacha Tintorera.

This week sees Roque and Luke switch up their surroundings and head to the centre to sample a bottle of DO Manzanilla-Sanlúcar de Barrameda at special guest Fabio's house. The trio tuck into a Micaela by Bodegas Barón and sample a splash of Barbiana. The group discuss the finer details of this fortified southern wine whilst dabbling in the usual nonsense and behaviour.
