What: Castillo de Monjardin Tasting
When: December 2, 2016 at 7:30
Where: JG 101
While the fall semester, and with that the year 2016, is drawing to a close, we are not going to let this end without one last tasting party. You are all invited to try great wines of Castillo de Monjardin from Narvarra, Spain.
Tucked in the foothills of the Pyrenées along the French Border in Navarra, Castillo de Monjardín’s estate was originally a way station along the famous pilgrimage route from Paris to Santiago de Campostella. Its proximity and historic cultural links to France provide a winemaking tradition based on Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, distinct from the rest of Spain. Monjardín does, however, make good use of the Garnacha that has made Navarra famous for its fresh, fruity rosés and lush, fruit-forward reds.
It’s a very busy time of the year but we all need a brief back from exam preparation and paper writing. And there is no better way to do so than to join us at our 6th and last event of the year. All you have to do is RSVP!
Happy thanksgiving and see you all next week!
