Join John Szabo M.S. and Sara d’Amato for an insider’s look into the white wines of Rueda. Tune-in for an entertaining, interactive session focused on the diverse styles of whites produced in Spain’s top-selling white wine, Rueda. Basking in sunshine, the rocky, limestone-rich, banks of the Duero and its tributaries are home to deep-rooted verdejo and other increasingly popular varieties such as sauvignon blanc. A rarity in Europe, the region features significant plantings of own-rooted (ungrafted) vines due to its sandy, stony soils that kept phylloxera at bay in the late 19th century. Family-owned and female-led wineries have become a staple of Rueda and is demonstrated in our selections as 4 out of the 6 wineries feature female winemakers at the helm. Don’t miss this fun and informative one-hour session with Sara and John as they take you through the history of Rueda, explore verdejo and most importantly, taste along with you! A few of the featured wineries will also be on hand to discuss their wines and answer any of your questions.
