I have been invited to attend two Spanish wine tastings this week. It should be a great time considering I/we returned from two weeks in Spain. We were not able to visit wineries as part of our visit. The one thing that made a huge impression on me was the miles and miles of Olive trees in the countryside. From Spain to Seville and Seville to Granada much of the growing landscape was Olive trees. A lot of Spanish olive oil is mixed with oils from Italy, Greece, Portugal and other growers.
The tastings this week are from the regions of Valencia and Rubero di Duero. All of the Rubero wines I have tasted are top class with great fruit extract and broad flavors which coat the palate and provide ample pleasure. I will post my thoughts and the names of the brightest wines this coming week.
Enjoy a glass of wine soon.
