Ribera del Duero

  • Lilliana's House

    TBA, Medfield, MA (map)

    42.187584 -71.306458

  • If you're searching for bold reds, look no further. Ribera del Duero answers the call with aromatic Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) wines that seduce with their intensity and balance. Miniscule quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Garnacha, Malbec and Merlot are also grown, although these varieties are used almost exclusively for blending. You can expect a top Ribera del Duero to be above all structured, with good body and powerful fruit flavors that rub shoulders with none-too-subtle woody notes. 

    In the last 30 years, Ribera del Duero has risen up to challenge Rioja for the crown of Spain's greatest wine region. Once known only as the home of Vega Sicilia it now boasts numerous bodegas of outstanding quality, from Pesquera to Condado de Haza. The region was granted its DO status in 1982, and today has over 170 wineries and more than 18,000 hectares of vines. No white wines are permitted.

    Let's get together and give these wines a try!  Plan to spend around $20-40.  Please bring 4 glasses and some food to share.  Lilliana will be cooking a Spanish or Mexican main course using a family recipe that will be sure to please. 

    Note:  Lilliana has two small dogs at her house.

    Hi Lilliana,

    Will your Latin dish be Gluten-Free? For health reasons I have to avoid all wheat and gluten.

    Thanks,
    Lilly

      This is a "pot luck" type event and you should plan to bring a dish that you can eat. I expect that some other people may bring gluten-free items as well. This tasting isn't intended to be a dinner - food items are there simply so that people can see how different things pair with the wines. So feel free to eat before you come, too

      No, sorry.

    I will bring a lentil dish - either lentil and chorizo soup or a spanish-style lentil stew.
