The Green Room Edinburgh & Insider's Travel present...
Introduction to Spanish Wine
If you’re curious about wine but feel it’s not your world, or looking to learn a little more about the Rioja or cava you drank on holiday, these casual and convivial sessions are ideal for deepening your knowledge and broadening your palate. The experience may be “virtual”, but the wines are very real and highly drinkable. These one-hour classes with our good friend and master sommelier Miguel Crunia are built around two Spanish wines – specially selected and delivered to your door in plenty of time for an interactive tasting.
The Galician-born grandson of a veteran wine merchant, Miguel now runs the renowned The Green Room in Edinburgh and serves as Spain’s “wine ambassador” to Scotland, importing bottles from booming vineyards and tiny, boutique bodegas in every corner of his country. For all his passion and erudition, he’s also a great storyteller and thoroughly laid-back host, who is only too happy to ease you through all the complex processes that go into the contents of each glass, from regional soil types and grape varieties to growing and ageing methods.
You’ll be free to ask questions, chat about your preferences, and make friends with fellow classmates, as the overall feel is more like a fun, informal wine club meeting (complete with a list of perfect side dishes to pair with each vintage, from cured meats and smoked cheeses to Miguel’s favourite Spanish olives).
