There is no formal structure to this meetup; simply come any time between 6 p. m. and 9 p. m., and order whatever you want, and stay as long as you like. Bar Ferdinand has about 15 wines of various types by the glass, all of them from Spain, and a tapas menu plus some entrees. Located in the Northern Liberties section of Philadelphia, Bar Ferdinand's focus on Spanish wine and Spanish-inspired dishes is a nice introduction to some wines and wine/food pairings that are not particularly familiar to many Americans. Spain has an extensive wine culture, and Bar Ferdinand's list features several wines made with indigenous grapes not well known to most wine drinkers in this country. The website is www.BarFerdinand.com .
We will be seated at the long table that is just inside the entrance to Bar Ferdinand.
This should be a fun, informal occasion for anyone who enjoys wine.
