Spanish Tasting & Tapas - Wednesday 13th April 2016

Posted on April 14, 2016 by John McCabe

We moved our monthly TASTING & TAPAS from it's usual spot (normally the last Wednesday of the month) to coincide with SPANISH WEEK - a week long celebration of Spanish Food & Wine!

So of course we had Spanish Wines as the theme!

This Tasting & Tapas night cost €25.00 per person and was sold out (which we hope means you all thought it was great value - and fun!)

SPANISH TASTING & TAPAS, Wednesday 13th April 2016
7.00pm
€25.00 per person
As this was a tasting, we do look for less obvious wines to taste - different without being strange!
