Spanish Wine Week starts today, and there is loads to get involved in across the city, from events and dinners to more informal tastings in your local wine shop. If you're one of those people who's always complaining about not knowing enough about wine, get involved. Or if you just like drinking it, get involved.
You can find the full line up of promotions and events here, but our picks include a Spanish wine dinner at Pickle, with 5 courses and matching wines for €55, a tasting of lesser-known regions and varieties at The Legal Eagle costing €35 with tapas, a sherry masterclass at 64 Wine with sherry expert Paddy Murphy for €25, and a sparkling wine tasting and lunch with wine writer Corinna Hardgrave at Suesey Street, which will set you back €35. All sound like brilliant value.
There are also some great deals on drinking in at Fallon & Byrne, who are doing free corkage on Spanish wine all week, Piglet, who'll have older vintages of Spanish wine at 25% off, and The Port House, who are doing flights of wines with tapas for €10 each.
