For Spanish wine enthusiasts and novices alike, the Roof Terrace Restaurant atop the world-famous Kennedy Center is hosting a themed wine tasting reception that will transport them across the world to Spain’s beautiful wine country. On Wednesday, September 29th, the restaurant will launch its monthly wine tasting series with “The Wines of Spain: Featuring the portfolio of renowned importer Jorge Ordonez.” Patrons can expect tastings of Spain’s top notch vintages along with an enticing hors d’oeuvres menu created to complement each wine selection and hints of the traditional flamenco culture. The Roof Terrace will showcase different themed receptions each month and feature wine tastings, cuisine and entertainment from different areas and topics.
The Spanish themed reception will also embody the traditional flamenco culture. This individualistic, yet structured Spanish folk art exists in three forms: Cante, the song; Baile, the dance; and Guitarra, guitar playing. To add to the overall experience, Executive Chef Joe Gurner’s Spanish-inspired creations will be served as the perfect accompaniments to the specialty wines being tasted.
The Wines of Spain tasting is priced at $40 per person and the event will be held from 6pm-8pm.
