  • Product Description

    Please join Bern’s Fine Wines & Spirits on Friday January 18th from 6:30-8pm for a Crush Hour featuring wines from Portugal and Spain.

    Known for bold reds, crisp whites, and distinctive sparkling and fortified wines, Spain and Portugal have embraced international varieties and wine styles while continuing to place the primary emphasis upon its own native grapes.  For this Crush hour we are going to take a look into some of the lesser known wines from each of these Regions, but don’t worry there is always room for Rioja!

    Five cheeses from the Bern’s Cave du Fromage will be paired with the wines, along with house made breads. The price is $25.00 per person. Reservations are requested and seats are limited.

    Featured Wines

    2016 Luis Seabra Xisto Cru White Blend, Douro
    Brilliant straw. On the nose, high toned and mineral driven aromas of sour peach, flowers, fresh fennel bulb and savory. On the palate, more peach, citrus zest and fennel, with white pepper and floral tones rounding out the finish. –Winery Notes

    1994 Quinto do Poco do Lobo Cabernet, Vinho Reginal Beiras
    Intense tannins give incredible structure and propensity to age balanced out with fresh acidity. –Winery Notes

    2016 Gaintz Txakolina, Getaria Basque
    Bright green-yellow. On the nose, high toned aromas of lemon, quince, green apple and sorrel are overlaid with sea spray and stony mineral notes. On the palate, puckering acidity and effervescence lend a practically gulpable appeal, with bright meyer lemon, apple and green herbs. Finishes salty and clean, begging for another sip. –Winery Notes

    2016 Idus de Vall Llach, DOQ Priorat
    The 2016 Idus is multifaceted, with alluring aromas of red forest fruit, fleshy black plums, hints of forest herbs, wood smoke and dark minerals. Wide on the palate, the wine is both powerful and fresh for an old-vine Priorat; displaying good acidity, round tannins and an incredibly long finish. –Winery Notes

    2015 Palacios Remondo Propeidad, DOCA Rioja
    Propiedad, is made from old-vine Garnacha that grows in stunning high-elevation vineyards resting on the rocky hillsides of Rioja Oriental. Aromas of candied orange peel, ripe strawberries, marzipan, dried Mediterranean herbs and soft, toasted oak notes. Well-balanced and exceptionally smooth on the palate, the 2015 Propiedad is both feminine, floral and fruit-forward. –Winery Notes

    2015 Navera Dama Cava, Catalonia
    One of only a few vintage Cavas made in Spain. Dama is full-bodied yet bright and crisp. The Naveran estate has been producing high-quality Cavas since 1901. All Cavas made here are from vineyards owned and controlled by the estate. Dama is fermented in the bottle (a la méthode champenoise) and aged in its lees for 24 months. –Winery Notes
