Tonight we travel to beautiful Spain to taste three beautiful tempranillos from the Frontaura y Victoria vineyard:
2011 Frontaura y Victoria Nexus
2008 Frontaura y Victoria Cosecha
2005 Frontaura y Victoria Reserva
Departure Lounge will also be showcasing travel images on their 46" touchscreens during our Meetup, and Wine Captain Mark will talk to us about these great Spanish Tempranillos and lead us through the tasting. To participate in the tasting there is a $10 flight charge (for three 2-ounce servings), but you're welcome to come join us without participating in the flight if you'd like. There will also be a happy-hour priced food pairing available for those needing a nibble.
The wine educational presentation will start at 6:45 to give us time to mingle before. Departure Lounge has a great happy hour special on flights ($6) from 4-7 p.m., so those arriving before 7 can take advantage of this.
Departure Lounge will sell bottles of the wines we are tasting tonight for 15% off the retail pricing:
2011 Frontaura y Victoria Nexus: $34 per bottle
2008 Frontaura y Victoria Cosecha: $40.80 per bottle
2005 Frontaura y Victoria Reserva: $58.65 per bottle
Street-side parking is free downtown on Tuesday evenings, so look for a spot along 5th street or Guadalupe Street.
