This week, as Madrid descends into winter, Roque and Luke head northwest back to Galicia to pick up their last DO there: DO Ribeiro. A positively sexy bottle of Pazo Tizón Extramundi white wine. Amid nonsense, the pair chat pairings with grilled food and why the Spaniards seems to drink more beer than vino!
This week sees Roque and Luke flying back to the Balearic Islands to guzzle down a bottle of DO Binissalem-Mallorca wine. They pop open a white by Jaume de Puntiró, made with an interesting local varietal. Amidst geeky chat they also explain the rules of the new SWE drinking game!
Today Roque and Luke travel to DO Alella, back to Catalan lands, where they will discover the red wine Parvus Syrah 2014, from Bodegas Alta Alella. The perfect occasion to answer some questions that had been left unanswered, besides saying a few stupidities and nonsense.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Mwahahahhaaaaa, welcome to our spooky special. Join Roque and Luke and a special guest as they drink wine and prepare for their Halloween party. Roque tests Luke in a blind tasting of reds while he makes a festive dessert. The conversation ranges from the alcoholic to the ghoulish. Listen? if you dare…
Happy Podcast Day! This week Roque and Luke tackle another one of the single estate Vinos de Pago! This time it’s DO Pago Florentino, a wine made in the depths of La Mancha but is owned by legendary Ribera del Duero bodega Arzuaga. They talk wine movies and receive and answer live ‘in the moment’ questions from some listeners.
