The Andersons in Woodville will offer “An Afternoon of Spain” on Saturday, April 24th, 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM.

Spanish wines will be paired with tapas dished to compliment them. Featured wines include:

1. Segura Viudas, Brut Reserva, Cava, Catalunya. A cava is a sparkling Spanish wine that is a blend of three grape varietals; Macebeo, Parellada and Xerel lo from the Catalunya region of Spain. This Cava offers soft citrus and subtle toasted bread and pleasant bubbles. A perfect start to the afternoon in Spain.

2. Laxas, 2008, Albarino, Rias Baxias. This wine is a favorite whites to share with friend. It's not too sweet and not too dry and it compliments seafood and chicken perfectly. Soft creamy white peaches paired with the right amount of green apples to leave just the right amount of acidity to keep you coming back for more.

3. Flor de Pingus, 2000, Ribera del Duero.  This is a well-known Spanish gem. This vintage has loads of blackberry, cassis and plenty of layers of spice including ground pepper, melted licorice and dried herbs. The finish has a delightful smoky essence that holds on.

4. Lustau, East India Sherry Jerez. The process that Sherry goes through is quite fascinating; we share it with you as well as some custard and chocolate to try with this delight. Expect sweet ripened figs, golden raisins, dried apricots and a sprinkle of caramel.

You will receive a 2 oz. pour of each wine and a 1 oz.  pour of Sherry as well as a sampling of the tTapas chosen to accompany the wine. The cost is $15 per person for a sampling of all the wine and food pairings or $12 if the reservation is made by April 17. Call (419) 698-8400 for information or reservations.
