Segura Viudas Wine Dinner This Week

Bodegas Segura Viudas, Catalonia
Don’t miss this Thursday’s wine dinner at La Taberna del Alabardero, featuring the the cavas of Segura Viudas and the wines of Freixenet. Eva Bertran, a native of Catalonia and V.P. of Wine Education will lead us through the tasting with David Brown, Marketing Director of Freixenet U.S.A. David, formerly in advertising, moved to Spain to learn flamenco guitar and from there had the opportunity to enter the wine industry.   Too bad he won’t be playing his guitar for us, but it will be a  lively and educational evening in any event!

La Taberna del Alabardero has put together an amazing five course menu to pair with the wines for a cost of $75.00.   The menu is shown below; please call La Taberna at 206.448.8884 to make reservations.   The dinner begins at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday September 23rd.

If you’re unable to attend the dinner, stop by La Taberna that afternoon to sample special pintxos, Freixenet wines and cocktails made with Segura Viudas cavas for $5.00 each.
