This month Diane is going to share part of her Spanish wine collection. We will start in NW Spain and try several wines from a well renowned Spanish wine maker, Raul Perez. Perez is known for his unusual wine making techniques such as aging his wines under water.
We will also try a few wines the regions of Priorat and Jumilla on the east coast of Spain.
These are higher end wines, so the cost may be more than usual, but they will be a real treat to try. These are the wines in the line up. We may only do three of the four flights depending on how many people we have:
Flight 1: 100 percent Mencia
