A fun, yet educational, alcoholic journey through the Spanish world of wine.
Join us as we drink our way through what this country, and this city, have to offer!
Maridaje (food and wine pairing)
Time for something completely different. This week Roque and Luke want to focus less on a particular region and/or grape and instead talk both generally, scientifically, culturally, nationally and gastronomically about the idea of food and wine pairing. But with a Spanish bent. To aid them they tuck into various Galician conservas from Delgado Selecciones and pair them with a top Dominio O Secreto Albariño by Ruiz Clavijo.
Barbanza e Iria
Another week and another exciting discovery. This time Roque and Luke enjoy a bottle of barrel-fermented Albariño, but not from the usual area. It's Galicia, but not as we know it. A tiny little Vino de la Tierra hiding in the northern fjords. The wine is Komokabras from Adega Entre Os Rios.
Pago de los Balagueses
Well, well, well, what's all this then? That's right, Roque and Luke discovered another one of Spain's 'top of the pyramid' hard-to-find Vino de Pago wines. This week it's the turn of Pago de los Balagueses, located in the interior of the Valencia region. They have a range of smashing wines and this week they're trying the delicious Garnacha Tintorera.
This week Roque and Luke take a light-hearted deep dive into the life of a vine. It's very common now to find wines with expressions like 'Old Vine' and 'Pie Franco' on the label. But what does this mean for the wine? We also talk more generally about the life of our favourite plant: the Vine. To enjoy this theme the boys enjoy a bottle of Octogenarius from more than 80-yr Rioja vines.
The Monovarietal and the Blend
This week the chaps want to step away from focussing on one particular grape or DO wine region for a moment and instead hone in on a theme that has been interesting them a lot recently: the idea of blended (multi-grape) wines 'vs' the single variety wine. To talk more about this Roque and Luke were lucky enough to receive a rather fancy bottle of El Grillo from Bodegas El Grillo y La Luna in DO Somontano!
This week Roque and Luke want to focus on the concept of the Atlantic Red, a style of wine that is becoming really popular in Spain. What is an Atlantic wine? What makes it so? Are there Atlantic wines that have nothing to do with the ocean itself? To talk more about this topic they drink a bottle of Golpe a Golpe Tinto from the Galician coast.

Best life wine experience in Spain
I really like these guys chatting around wine in different places of Madrid. Great podcast to listen while driving. If I just could taste those wines with them...
