Wine Geek Week: Spain – Mazuelo and Manchego at The Vine Room

August 22 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


Twin Cities Wine Education is proud to present a perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon!

Wine Geek Week: Spain – Wine on the Weekend (with a cheese class!)

Mazuelo and Manchego!
Presented by sommelier and educator Shar Peterson

Our new weekend wine series will focus on a particular pairing of one grape variety with one type of cheese. Come learn all about the Mazuelo grape, known in the rest of the world as Carignane, including its history, differing styles, top regions around the world, outstanding producers, and more. Learn all about what this grape brings to the glass, what to look for in a top-quality Carignane, and how to find the biggest bang for the buck.

And pairing it with Manchego! Learn all about this historic and delicious cheese, the laws that protect this style of cheese, and get ideas of how best to enjoy it.

These new wine and cheese pairing experiences are sure to be eye-openers for you! Three outstanding wines of very different styles will be served along with the cheese. 

I hope you can join us for this special class!
