We had such a great time with Nika! It was our ‘date night’ so we picked the wine experience. Nika was so knowledgeable about wines, we learned about all of the main varieties, what to look for on the label, what to pair it with. She even gave us a recipe for an amazing cocktail that we had all summer long- we can at least pretend to be in Spain through the cocktail until we can get there in person!
Very informative about the history of Spanish wine. Just what I was looking for. Enjoyed it very much. Thank you!

As diverse in culture as it is in landscapes, Spain has long been a crossroads for people and civilizations from across Europe and North Africa. And thanks in part to the plentiful sunshine and perfect wine-growing conditions in much of the country, each of these has left its mark on the “living history” of Spanish wine.
Join certified Spanish wine scholar and wine educator Nika from her home in Barcelona where she will lead you on an exploration of the history and culture behind five emblematic wines and regions: sherry, cava, Rioja, verdejo and sweet moscatel. These are absolute Spanish classics that you might have already tried—but how they connect to Spain’s history is the part that not everyone gets to find out!
And of course, like all of our online experiences, you will receive our Spanish wine cheat sheet, as well as a special discount for our Recipes From the Devour Tours Kitchen digital cookbook so you can create delicious dishes at home!
