Join San Sebastián Food for an exclusive Spanish wine tasting experience this summer at Hotel Maria Cristina, a Luxury Collection Hotel. As Spain is known for its world-class wines, and Hotel Maria Cristina is acclaimed for its luxurious elegance, this Tasting with the Winemaker is certain to inspire the novice and connoisseur alike.
Dropping in to San Sebastián Food’s wine tasting space today I met with winemaker Andrew Halliwell. Walking in, the long table caught my eye—a glass-topped Basque fishing boat—and I knew I was in an artistic culinary explorers’ scene. Andrew lucidly guided me through the origins and the processing of a few bottles before I could find out more about the man himself. When he handed me his own “Viña Pomal” from Bodegas Bilbainas, I knew I had to hear more about the skill behind such a piece of liquid art.
