Last week, City Vino was dreaming of a red (wine) Christmas, and we continue that thought for our weekly tasting on Friday, December 10, and Saturday, December 11, with red wines from around the globe. Join us on a quick tasting jaunt to Italy, France, Spain, and Virginia.
This weekend, Friday October 8th and Saturday October 9th, 2021, travel with City Vino to four regions of Spain. The identity of these regions is forever linked to a specific grape variety or a couple of varieties.

Discover the Portuguese varieties Castelão, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, or Tempranillo, Baga, Trincadeira, and Padeiro, as well as their growing regions!
