Spain & Portugal: Classic Wines

at NYC Wine Company - West Village 330 W 11th St, New York, New York 10014

You could sample a new Spanish wine every night of the year and still not experience all the variety that this country produces. Each region has their own specialty.

Napa vs. Bordeaux

at NYC Wine Company - West Village 330 W 11th St, New York, New York 10014

Both grow Cabernet Sauvignon, both are fiercely loyal to their region, and both create intense, complex, long-lived wines. Yet they are not the same. Bordeaux, with its centuries of history and ornate chateaux, claims restraint and finesse as well as power, yet by a judicious hand. The wines of Pauillac, Margaux, Graves, St Julien, Pomerol, St Emilion...

at NYC Wine Company - West Village 330 W 11th St, New York, New York 10014

French wines ooze intimidation; the language, no grape listed anywhere in sight, countless vineyards and producers, and all this at often exorbitant prices.

Simply because they still continue to create so many of the world’s most intriguing, exotic, and individualistic...
