Wine & Cheese Italy vs Spain @ Spencer & Co 13th March 2019

March 13, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Italy vs Spain Cheese and Wine @ S&Co

Italy vs Spain. Wine vs Wine. Cheese vs Cheese.

The Spaniards drink more but who does it better?

Both Italy and Spain have the European “drink with food” culture. Spain drinks quite a lot more because alcohol is more tolerated.

Spain = 11.2 litres per capita per year – pretty typical of Europe (eg UK is 11.6)
Italy = 6.9 litres per capita per year – the lowest in Europe
(this might be related to ‘bella figura’ – both in terms of alcohol being fattening and that being drunk in public is very bad form)

Enjoy Wine and Cheese From Spain and Italy.

A sit down masterclass, tasting wines from these two different countries with me. Adding to the compare the contrast is Blake with artisan cheeses.

All taking place at Spencer & Co Wine Bar Provedore

This beautiful space with industrial features yet inviting setting is the perfect backdrop for this sensuous experience.

Come and sample a selection of authentic cheeses whilst touring the best vineyards of Spain and Italy.

A great way to enjoy a fun and educational Italian/Spanish sensation!

Taste some more unusual varieties and styles. 100% delicious.
