Basque and Spanish Wine 5:30 pm Weds, Aug 11

The wine world is abuzz right now with the wines of Spain and Basque Country. Today, New York Times wine writer Eric Asimov published a great article on the Basque Country wine Txakolina (Txakoli) in his weekly column and he also posted on his blog about these wonderful wines, which until recently were almost impossible to find in the U.S.

You can taste Ameztoi 2009 Txakolina Rubentis Rose, a Txakolina (Txakoli) imported by André today at our Spanish and Basque Wine Tasting Party, featuring the wines of De Maison Imports, André’s company. (As Eric points out in his article today, Txakoli and Txakolina are used interchangeably.)
