Saturday 29th February Winemaker’s Dinner – Spanish wines

Come and experience the perfect union of wine and food and learn about the wines as told by experts. In the spring of 2020, we will organize four special dinners at the Salarakas cabinet, each of which will be visited by a winery representative with their products.Our chefs will prepare a special tasting menu paired with the wines for each event.

Íñigo Echeverría, the founder of Nordvin, is the special guest of our second Winemaker’s Dinner. His company imports quality Spanish wines to Finland. Mr Echeverría will bring with him an interesting selection of flavours from his native country: wine made of traditional Spanish varieties, varietal wines and blends, reds, whites, rose, cava… You are welcome to join us for a fun and delicious evening!

The event starts at 6 pm. We recommend you arrive in time.
