On Wednesday, March 5th, Parallel 38 will welcome Eva Benito Perez, head winemaker for the Viña Real winery, located in the Rioja Alavesa region of Rioja, Spain for a special wine tasting dinner and happy hour event.
Viña Real was founded in 1920 by Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España (CVNE), and was one of the first brands to produce age-worthy wines in the Rioja Alavesa region from Tempranillo. The wines are produced from grapes grown in the heart of the Rioja Alavesa province and boast balance and elegance while combining New World fruit intensity with Old World style.
Eva will join P38’s owner and Advanced Sommelier, Justin Ross to introduce a selection of wines from Viña Real and CVNE. CVNE is one of the most important wine producers of Spain. Founded by the Real de Asua brothers in 1879, it remains family-owned and family-run, with the latest generation committed more than ever to making great wine in meaningful quantities.
P38 is offering two ways to participate in this special event. Reserve a seat for the intimate 6-course, all-inclusive wine dinner with Eva for $95 (11 seats available) starting at 7pm or come to the happy hour event from 5-7pm to meet Eva and taste her wines, available for a discounted rate, “by-the-glass”.
The Wine Happy Hour is open to anyone but not included in the dinner and will be priced.
