Taste of Spain!

First off i need to say a huge thanks to David Gummer, Sandi Hollas, and Curtis Bawden for all their hard work that went into this event. I am sure there are many others as well that deserve props.
October 5th for the 1rst Annual " A Taste of Spain " held at the Winspear Center.
 We tasted over 100 wines from some of Spains most popular regions such as Rioja, Penedes, Ribera del Duero, Priorat and Catalonia.
Grape varietals as Garnacha Tinta, Tempranillo, Carinnena, Samsoo, Moscatel, Monastrell and more.

This was a great night and all the tables had high quality, premium wines for sampling.
Silent auction was also a great success to raise mony for the MS Society.
I walked away with a great gift basket with a 2001 and a 2004 Gaudium by Marques de Caceres. All for a great cause right?
Highlighst of the night for me included a 2010 Marques de Riscal white rioja, 2001 Sierra Cantabria Rioja,  2006 Torres Mas la Planas and the 2006 Condado De Haza Ribera del Duero. So many other stellar wines but i can list them all!
