Post this show to your favorite social network


The first in our series of seminars from the 2012 Hospice du Rhone gets into Spanish wine. It’s no secret that Spain is producing many of the world’s great wine made from Rhone varietals. Yet, it was another eye-opening experience to taste through this first seminar. Moderated by Steve Olson and joined by importer Eric Solomon who has pulled together some of the top winemakers in Spain including: José Maria Vicente, of Casa Castillo in Jumilla; Daniel Jimenez-Landi, of Bodegas Jiménez-Landi in Méntrida; Bixente Ocafrain, of Bodegas Mas Alta in the Priorat; and Daphne Glorian-Solomon, of Clos Terrasses in the Priorat.

Join us as we hear first-hand about the geography and climate of this rugged country, and why it produces such compelling wines.
