Wine is meant to be enjoyed! This is especially the case if you find yourself in Spain, which is the world’s third largest producer of wine. But do you get stressed choosing a wine at a restaurant, the local supermarket or specialised wine shop? Or do you just want to get your taste buds working and enjoy different wines? Which ever the case, the IH Wine Club will take you through the basic steps of tasting, the identification of typical wine aromas and quality as well as the importance of “terroir”. In the tasting sessions we will taste wines from different grape varieties and regions of Spain and analyse their similarities and/or differences with other European and New World wines.
