BIG NEWS: Something massive has happened in the world of Spanish wine. The mythical DO Ribera del Duero - home almost exclusively to be sexy Tempranillo-centric reds - has finally allowed white wines to be part of the Denominación de Origen.

This week Roque and Luke return to the legendary region of DO Rueda to try an historic, mythical and almost completely unknown style of fortified wine called 'Dorado'. This sherry-style wines are made of local varieties and are a real bargain if you can find them. To help them delve deeper into this world they glug a bottle of Dorado 61 by the winery Cuatro Rayas.

Vinos de Pago. Roque and Luke have had a couple of them over the years; but they thought they'd take the opportunity to cover them in a bit more depth. What are they? What are they like? Where are they from? Are they really the best? To help them talk about them they sample a bottle from Bodegas Otazu near Pamplona and toast the cancelled San Fermín fiestas!

It's hot in Madrid. Summer has arrived. This week Roque and Luke turn their focus to the wonderful world of Spanish rosé. People usually think either of French Provence pink or sweet American blush wines, but Spain has a very long and strong tradition. To help them talk about rosé they open the brand new vintage of Micro Cuveé Rosado from the Cepas de la Culebra winery! So get your sunny pink hat on and enjoy!

Spanish Wine Experience

There's things happening in the local wine region around here. DO Vinos de Madrid has undergone some changes in the last year, so Roque and Luke thought they'd use that as excuse to drink more local plonk. Also they sample 3 wines from a BRAND NEW Madrid winery opened just before the Covid-19 outbreak from Bodegas Cuarto Lote. Enjoy!

Spanish Wine Experience

This week Roque and Luke take a look at a concept of wine, and perhaps wine marketing, called Vino de Parcela. Or, in English, single plot or block wines. So what is this all about? Does it mean the wine is better? To try and get to grips with the concept more, they open 4 bottles from the DO Cigales winery La Legua!

On their 100th official episode Roque and Luke decide to indulge in a broader topic. Roque hails from the southeast of the country, so they thought they'd take the opportunity to delve into the world of 'Mediterranean Wines'. To help them they sampled two Sericis wines: a Bobal from Utiel Requena and a barrel-fermented Merseguera from Valencia, courtesy of Bodegas Murviedro.

This week Roque and Luke are trying something different. Instead of focussing fully on just a region, they want to spend more time focussing on the grapes themselves. The real stars of the show. This week the legendary Garnacha grape. To help them along their way they drink an absolute boozy beast of a wine: Brega, by Jorge Ordoñez.
