Just a few miles … okay, 3,000+ miles … away from where Ribera del Duero and Rueda wines are grown and made, foodies, bloggers and wine lovers came out in full force for a Ribera y Rueda event in Brooklyn that had everyone smiling. With a handful of wines paired with ridiculously delicious food at master sommelier Alex LaPratt’s restauraunt Atrium, we showed Brooklyn what it’s like to Sí What’s Next.
Verdejo paired with smoked salmon and ceviche. Tempranillo paired with lamb rillettes. Paint pens decorated glasses with all sorts of personalized sass. Food meets wine, wine meets food — and more importantly, people meet people, which is what wine is all about. But enough about us telling you about it — see for yourself with a bit of an Instagram summary:
