A Night of Spanish Wines and Tapas (Cancelled)

  • Jun 22, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

I hope you’ll join us for a wine tasting of Spanish wines limited to 10 guests. We will meet at the host’s Schaumburg home: address to be given to those who attend. All guests need to be known by one of the group's organizers or hosts. You are asked to bring one bottle of Spanish wine in the $10-$25 range…your choice-white, red, or cava (Spanish sparkling wine). If you want to splurge and spend more I’m sure we will all enjoy it! Please…no sangria since that will be my welcome wine to you! I’m planning a full assortment of both cold and hot tapas to complement our tastings.

According to Bodega: Adventures in Spanish Wine and Food, Spain is known for its vine cultivation, world wide exporting, and its large wine production. I’d appreciate it if you post the wine that you are bringing (name and year) at least 1 week in advance in the comments section. This will allow guests to avoid duplicate tastings and give me time to prepare the tasting sheets and background information for each wine.

A Meet Up fee of $11 will be collected to cover the costs of tapas and the evening’s prizes.

    I have asked Jason to refund your money. I am starting physical therapy later this week and it may go on for a month. If you paid me directly, please email me so that I can arrange your refund. I will reschedule, but probably not until much later this summer. Thank you all for being so understanding!!

      Sorry I missed it. Once we cancelled I planned on the GreekFest in Palatine, a Weezer concert and then the blackhawks game. I only saw the third period. The good guys won. I hope Toews is ok.

      Almost everyone has told what wine they are bringing (hint, hint- Joe S!) So I chose a varietal not represented: 2009 Finca Sandoval Signo . Supposedly the bobal grape is somewhere in the middle of a merlot and a malbec. The woman who was helping me seemed to like it:)
