SPANISH PARKER 94+ WINES
We are very fond of Spanish wines. The quality (and price) is often quite astonishing. So this evening we want to introduce you to the Spanish wine scene, with wines that have at least received 94 points from the most famous wine journalist & criticaster Robert Parker.
Rosé has seen a huge boom in sales over the last twenty years. Very popular with young people, especially on a warm spring & summer day. The wines are often conceived as fresh, even a bit dull. However there is more to rosé than we think. This evening we taste different samples ranging from pure freshness to complexity, as intriguing as their red and white mates.
Now spring is in the air, we start looking for fresh white wines again. Are you bored of Sauvignon Blanc and want to discover something new? Then you should attend our Tastecab on Txakoli. This wine from the Spanish Basque Country used to be a simple sipping wine for local use, but as of late also more serious and complex expressions of Txakoli are available. The 3 Michellin star restaurant Azurmendi even has its own Txakoli winery! High time to discover this unique product!
From 8 october till 14 october it is the international week of Sherry. We are happy to participate to this international event by organising an introductory tasting to let you discover the different styles of Sherry. Be assured, Sherry has a full range of styles that can attract any wine lover!
Our fourth TasteCab of the year brings us again to Slovenia. Due to the succes of our last Slovenian TasteCab, we have imported some new wines. We discover and enjoy some of the top producers of the Brda region. Expect French and Italian grape varieties with a Slovenian expression.
Around the World
For this evening we have selected nine grapes that will guide us through the old and new world of wine. This evening we will taste classics but also go off the beaten track, with one purpose: to surprise you with new tasting insights !
SPANISH TOP WINES
Upon request by our Spanish wine lovers, we present a special TasteCab: this evening we will taste the wines of some of the most famous wine domains in Spain, like Telmo Rodriguez, Vega Sicilia, Pingus, and others. It is going to be unforgetable!
Our third TasteCab brings us to Bergerac, the little brother of Bordeaux, or isn’t it little ? We taste wines of known and lesser known domains, young and some older wines, dry and sweet, basic and cuvées to find out.
LEARN to TASTE WINE
We organise a crash course for people who want to get the basics of “tasting wine”. It is the ideal opportunity to discover the fascinating world of wine, to get to know the people behind WineCab and to experience our approach.
