MEL WINE TASTING IN MÉRIDA
Join us on January 20 for the next MEL WINE TASTING:
WINES FROM SPAIN paired with classic SPANISH TAPAS and hosted in a spectacular private home that combines the best of traditional and modern Mexican style, including spacious outdoor entertainment areas spread over two floors.
Tapas, a centuries-old tradition in Spain, are small plates of flavorful bites served at bars throughout the country. These simple, spicy, salty, garlicky snacks are perfect with the wines and sherries of each region.
And no one better to choose those wines than Spanish-Mexican sommelier Fernando Almazán of Sommelier Express. Merida’s most in-demand sommelier fascinated us at the November Tasting with his knowledge and charisma. Fernando is back in January!
