Description: 

Last sun of the season, a fire pit for extra warmth, Northern Lights overhead, and Spanish wines in hand…a lovely way to end the Winedown Wednesday season.

We will begin with a delightful Cava, move on to Verdejo, and then delve into the reds with a Merlot and a selection of Tempranillo. We will end the evening with a decadent Pedro Ximénez rich on the palate with well-balanced acidity and a lovely length.
