Spain vs. California, a Virtual Tasting Experience, January 31st, 2021

Emmitt-Scorsone Wines is proud to be partnering with Spanish tour specialists (us!) for a virtual tasting of wines from Spain and California on Sunday, January 31st at 1pm PST/4pm EST.

This unique virtual experience will include an introduction to Spanish wine from Madrid-based sommelier Raúl Orantes and the chance to taste 2 Spanish wines side-by-side with 2 similarly styled California wines produced by Emmitt-Scorsone Wines.

You’ll be free to ask questions of both Raúl and winemaker Palmer Emmitt, chat about your preferences, and enjoy the fun, informal “wine club” meeting with your friends and family. We’ll also suggest a list of perfect side dishes to pair with each bottle, from cured meats and smoked cheeses to Raul’s favorite Spanish olives.
