*Please note that we promote our events in a variety of ways so the number of RSVPs on meetup will not give you an accurate count. Also this is not an official meetup event, as it's just too difficult to do as a group, but it should be a great event. In addition to offering a great lineup of Spanish wines, there will be gourmet bites provided by The Bazaar and it will be combined with an art exhibit.
Join us for a Spanish wine tasting on Tues, Nov. 12th. This special event, hosted by Wines from Spain, is part of their annual 'Spain's Great Match' US tour -- and will take place at The Moore Building in the Miami Design District. The Great Match, a collaborative celebration of the distinctive wines and food of Spain, brings together American importers and distributors of Spanish wines who will be presenting their best products, some new wines and the latest vintages during this walk around tasting.
