Rare Wine Company Spanish Wine Dinner

  • Biga Restaurant 4329 South Peoria Avenue Tulsa, OK, 74105 United States (map)

Speaker-Sarah Effington from Provisions

$45 per person

“Spanish wines are wines produced in Spain. Located on the Iberian Peninsula, Spain has over

2.9 million acres planted—making it the most widely planted wine-producing nation but it is the

third largest producer of wine in the world, the largest being Italy followed by France. This is

due, in part, to the very low yields and wide spacing of the old vines planted on the dry, infertile

soil found in many Spanish wine regions. The country is ninth in worldwide consumptions with

Spaniards drinking, on average, 21.6 litres per person a year. The country has an abundance of

native grape varieties, with over 400 varieties planted throughout Spain though 80 percent of the

country's wine production is from only 20 grapes—including the reds Tempranillo, Garnacha,

and Monastrell; the whites Albariño from Galicia, Palomino, Airen, and Macabeo; and the three

cava grapes Parellada, Xarel·lo, and Macabeo”

1st Course

Salmon in Mango Escabeche

Wine-Hermanos Pecina Rioja Bianco

“The winery focuses on red wines but does have a small number of white vines.

This limited production white is superb with notes of apples and peaches on the

nose and great intensity of fruit on the palate. ”

2nd Course

Pasta with Tomato and Chorizo

Wine-Bernabelva Navaherreros

100% Garnacha

“Navaherrerros is a red wine made from grenache grapes from every vineyard in the estate.

Through different soils, orientations and microclimates, it expresses San Martin de Valdeiglesias'

terroir. The ages of the vines range from 40 to 80 and planting densities from 1,900 to 2,200

vines per hectare.”


Roast Pork loin with Romesco

Wine-Palacios Petalos del Bieros

95% Mencia, 3% white varieties, and 2% other red varieties.

" This savory red offers notes of espresso, black olive and graphite framing a core of black

cherry and licorice. Fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity keep this balanced.

Harmonious and graceful."
