ONLINE WINEMAKER TASTING SERIES: Valserrano of Rioja with Pablo de Simón
We are so excited to announce another fantastic series of ‘Meet the Winemaker’ online tasting sessions: Rioja's Valserrano with Pablo de Simón on Thursday 7th May 6:00pm – 6:45pm and Thursday 14th May from 6:00pm – 6:45pm.
Valserrano (Rioja, Spain)
This long established family Bodega lies in the village of Villabuena, drawing from vineyard plantings on the limestone ridges of the Alavesa region. It is based on the same principal as a good French Château which is to use fruit only from their own vineyards, set rigorous standards in the cellars and, following fermentation in stainless steel, age the wine in oak, part of which is renewed each year. The wines have elegance and pungency combined with the soft spicy allure that only well-made Tempranillo can offer.
5 generation family member and Export Director, Pablo di Simón will be on-hand to discuss the fanastic history and wines of his family's winery.
TASTING SERIES DATES (Both sessions begins at 6:00pm and will last approximately 45 minutes):
- Thursday 7th May 2020
- Thursday 14th May 2020
COURSE STRUCTURE AND FORMAT:
Each evening Pablo di Simón will be joining us live with West London Wine School founder Jimmy Smith. Pablo will host each session live at 6:00pm over 2 consecutive Thursdays. Each session will be approximately 45 minutes in length. Unable to commit to each evening? No problem! Anyone registered for this tasting series will gain access to the video recordings of each session, so you can always revisit any of these at anytime in the future - whether its because you missed participating in the live evening or if you want to revisit the presentation at a later date.
Each evening, Pablo and Jimmy will be tasting three wines that are discussed during that evening's session. A case of each wine covered throughout the course (6 in total) will be available to order for anyone registered to attend the course, so if you'd like, you can also purchase and enjoy the wines with Pablo and Jimmy on the night (or at a later date). The cost for this 6 bottle case is £150 and thanks to a collaboration with several of our suppliers is available purchase via Streatham Wine House HERE. Any wine orders received after 12pm will be processed on the next working day. The team is working hard to deliver your order within two working days of the order being processed however due to the current environment the wines may arrive a day or two later than expected.
