"A World of Wine in a Single Spanish Valley"

The above is the title of a Rioja Professional Seminar that will be held at the Disney Dining Room of UCFs Rosen School of Hospitality Management on Tuesday, April 20, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm.  The seminar will be led by wine educator/sommelier Adrian Murcia.  Participants will "taste a broad range of wines from DOCa Rioja and discover how subtle variations in microclimate, soil type,and winemaking philosophy have over time transformed Spain’s Upper Ebro Valley into something of a wine kingdom unto itself: the land of a thousand wines."

Adrian Murcia writes and teaches regularly about wine and cheese. After seven years at New York City’s Chanterelle Restaurant, where he was fromager and assistant sommelier, he recently founded Brooklyn Fermented, a roving academy offering classes on wine, cheese, and beer to a new generation of Brooklyn gastronomes. Mr. Murcia has written for Santé, Saveur, and Wine & Spirits; he is the author of the wine blog “Blame it on Rioja” and co-author of the educational DVD/webcast, “Rioja: Tradition and Innovation at the Frontiers of Flavor”, produced by the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone. He holds a Level II (Certified Sommelier) Certificate from the Court of Master Sommeliers.
