ROC: Tour of Spain with Bruce Smoller



Isn't a trip to Spain on everyone's bucket list? A walk down La Rambla, a drive through Valencia or Rioja? Perhaps a bullfight in Madrid. Spain really does have it all from beautiful seaside towns to the mountains of the Pyrenees and all the beauty in between. We might not be able to get there this summer, but we can still experience much of what Spain has to offer with food and wine.

Dr. Bruce Smoller will be giving us insight into the wines and foods of Spain at our July event. He will take us on a trip through Spain as we try everything from Cava to Rioja to Sherry. Our taste buds are going to explode!

Don't siesta on this one, folks! Space is limited, so get yourself signed up! Hasta Luego!
