The New Face of Spanish Red Wine- Virtual Tasting with Sommeliers

Join sommeliers Cristina Cippitelli and Mackenzie Putici for a 2-week tasting series of the New Face of Spanish Wine.

About this Event

Join sommeliers Cristina Cippitelli (Chotto Matte) and Mackenzie Putici (New World Wine Tours) for a 2-week tasting series of the New Face of Spanish Wine.

In coordination with Jason of Cosecha imports you’ll have 6 exclusive wines delivered to your door. (Included in ticket price) 
6 bottles- 1 Sparkling, 1 White, 1 Rosé, 3 Red. 



Cosecha sources wines from artisinal winemakers who have recovered the low-intervention, traditional winemaking practices of their grandparents’ generation. These producers have restored ancient vineyards and traditional grape varietals in order to produce balanced wines with fresh acidity and well-integrated alcohol-levels. 

Forget the heavy, mass-produced wines from the big houses of Rioja, and discover a new and exciting taste of Spain. 


May 20th- Spanish White + Rosés 

Discover the mineral-rich, cool pockets of Spain producing compelling white wines and rosés. You’ll learn which regions to keep an eye on, the grape varietals that are sure to make you smitten, and a history of the producers making these wines. 


May 27th- Spanish Reds

We’ve all tried Rioja, now it’s time to see what the rest of Spain is up to. Delve into the diversity of this fertile country. Taste grapes dating from Roman times harvested in Toro, the ripe dark fruit character of the southern DO Jumilla, and the terroir-driven Garnacha of Montsant. 


Each session will include:

  • an introduction to the wine regions, grapes, history, and producers. 
  • a sommelier led tasting of 2 wines. 
  • a Q+A session, with Cristina, Mackenzie, and Jason. 
The Zoom links will be sent out by email 24 hours prior to the session.
