This Wednesday, 6th June, we’re putting on a very special evening for our Spanish students. At 7pm, we’ll meet up at Instituto Hemingway for a wine tasting workshop.
This activity takes place as part of the programme of free cultural activities which our Spanish school puts on for our students so that they can learn a bit more about the culture which surrounds them, and have fun at the same time.
Alfredo, our in-house wine expert, will be our tutor and our guide, helping each of us to discover our inner wine-taster.
This month, we will be sampling a Rioja de Tirgo, bottled by the Castresana Bodega and a 1920 -Alta expresión- de Valencia, a blend of Merlot, Cabernet y Syrah.
And so, through these two red wines we will immerse ourselves in the world of scents, colours and flavours as the secrets of wine are slowly unveiled to us. We will learn to refine our palates, and to develop our sense of smell to distinguish even the most subtle differences.
This activity is sure to be great fun, both for those who are already party to the secrets of wine, and for those who can just about tell the difference between “red” and “white”. It will be a great opportunity to get to know some of your classmates and to practice your Spanish in an environment far removed from the classroom.
We’ll raise a glass to all who come. Don’t miss it!
We’ll see you here at Instituto Hemingway, Wednesday 6th at 7pm.
