Los Vinos de España
(The Wines of Spain)
If my memories are correct, my first encounter with Spanish wine was a bottle of Yago Sangria, when it still had the plastic net, in the back seat of a car on the way to the Syria Mosque to hear Stanley Turrentine play. I was 17. Things have changed since then.

We will taste six wines from Spain, the world leader in exporting wine. Here is a chance to sample some of the most exciting wines on the market, and have an expert tell us about them. If you feel the urge, Spanish attire is welcomed!

Our tasting will be presented by Rob McCaughey this month. Rob grew up in London and was faced with a choice of a law degree or a life in the booze business. Needless to say he chose the latter and has spent the last 20 years roaming the globe in the hospitality and beverage industries. Rob has worked throughout Europe, Asia and the Middle East and brings an international perspective and a wealth of knowledge to our tasting.
Rob’s certifications include: WSET Level 3 Award in Wines and Spirits as well as Level 2 Award in Spirits (with distinction); Certified Specialist in Spirits with the Society of Wine Educators; Advanced Bartender graduate of the United States Bartender Guild’s Master Accreditation Program.
