Alberto Moro will present the wines of Emilio Moro, one of the outstanding wineries of Ribera del Duero. These wines score frequently above 90 points, and that's from magazines that don't always agree with each other.
Tinto del Pais is the clone of Tempranillo grown in Ribera del Duero. It has a thicker skin, smaller grapes in looser bunches. Combined with the high altitude of Emilio Moro vineyards, this results in wines that are deeply colored, highly structured and intensely flavored while still keeping their elegance.
In the white wines of Emilio Moro, the star is Godello, a very high quality white grape that is exceptionally food friendly. It is refreshing and subtle in its entry level examples, but can also be intensely flavored and full-bodied as it goes higher up the ladder.
Emilo Moro makes three Godellos, all from the Bierzo DO: Polvorete, El Zarzal and La Revelia. At Blind Bishop, Polvorete has been a diners' favorite for its successful pairing with, well, almost anything and its affordability. We are looking forward to tasting and pairing El Zarzal and La Revelia during the seminar.
Join us and Alberto Moro at Blind Bishop on Wednesday September 21st, learn about the region Ribera del Duero, the varieties Tinto del Pais and Godello, and taste these fantastic wines.
Please arrive at 6:30pm for a presentation by Alberto Moro accompanied by a seminar and tasting through the wines. We'll serve various small dishes paired with the wines during the tasting. There will be ample opportunity to ask any questions you may have both during and after the presentation.
EVENT FULL. Please join us for our other upcoming events.
