Ribera Del Duero

Have you tried Spanish wines recently? Yesterday we enjoyed a beautiful media tasting and luncheon featuring the wines of Ribera Del Duero, a wine region in Spain and located in the country’s northern plateau. 
We tasted 14 wines featuring the grape varietals of Tinta del Pais, Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo.

All the wines here are available at the LCBO or through a wine agent here in Ontario.
Awesome food wines.

After placing twice in the Top Twelve in 2007 and 2010, she became the first woman to make the podium by taking 2nd place at the World’s Best Sommelier competition, in Tokyo in March 2013. V

Speaking of food, it was amazing! Have you been to La Palma on Dundas street in Toronto? Definitely worth the visit. Shared plates. La Palma Toronto
