The conquistadors of Spain sailed around the world, opening new trade routes, in the Age of Discovery from the 15-18th centuries.

We don’t need to hop on a boat or conquer lands to Discover the beauty of aged wines of Spain;

All we need to do is meet up in Remsen on Wed March 18th!
Wine is time, terroir, and labor trapped in a bottle to be released and enjoyed.

All levels of wine enthusiasts can find great appreciation in this lecture’s selection!
