Earlier this year, Master of Wine Tim Atkin visited Ribera del Duero to select his Top 50 wines from the region. Now, Tim will host two Ribera del Duero masterclasses this summer in Manchester and London, each showcasing 12 of his Top 50 wines, as selected from over 300 wines tasted at the Consejo and a number of the region’s Bodegas.
From elegant, barrel-aged examples to the newer style of fruit-forward wines with minimal oak ageing, the masterclasses will illustrate the variety offered by one of the UK’s top-selling Spanish D.O.s. The masterclasses are an opportunity to taste pure, terroir-driven Tempranillo from prestigious star producers, as well as wines from a number of the region’s lesser-known and organic hidden treasures, whilst discovering more about and discussing Ribera del Duero’s unique soil composition, microclimates and famed indigenous grape: Tinto Fino.
Each masterclass is free to attend but must be registered in advance as spaces are limited.
