Discover Rioja Seminar- Nantucket Food and WineThe Nantucket Hotel & Resort, Nantucket, MA
Discover Rioja! Spain’s most famous and premier wine region. One of the enduring Rioja hallmarks is that it produces one of the most age worthy wines of the world. For over a century and a quarter Rioja’s traditional age-worthy Reservas and Gran Reservas have set the standard for Spain’s red wines. We will look at Rioja’s recent transformative revolution and the overall impact since the late 19th century. This will be an opportunity to taste and learn about Tempranillo, the most important grape of Spain and one of the world’s greatest expressions of red wine, but also the beautiful whites and crisp rosados the region puts forth.
This exquisite event will explore Rioja’s centenarian legacy, the viticultural wonderland’s wines, culture, and history. The seminar will be led by Rioja devotee and European Wine Expert Robin Kelley O’Connor, Certified Wine Educator (CWE) / Wine & Spirits Writer/ Sommelier and Nick Daddona, a Court of Master Sommeliers-Advanced Sommelier, Beverage Director and Sommelier for Boston Urban Hospitality Group which includes award-winning collection of restaurants—Deuxave, dbar, and Boston Chops.
