SKETCHES OF SPAIN GREETINGS BROWNE TRADING MARKET FRIENDS! With all the great wine coming out of the Iberian peninsula these days, it’s no wonder if I’ve got Spain on the brain. One of the things I love about what’s going on over there is that the current quality level of the traditional stuff is just as exciting as the extremely vibrant wave of new and forward-looking projects. Often the “new” and the “old-school” overlap, as dilapidated or forgotten corners are given new life by younger folks with a fresh vision. Join me and my friend Mike Francis of South Portland Wine. Co. at Browne Trading Market from 4 to 6pm on Thursday, March 28 to taste a little cross section of Spain. From the extremely traditional but oh-so enchanting cellars of Señiorío de P. Peciña in Rioja to Raul Perez’s visionary reimagining of Bierzo, there will be much to savor. The featured wines will be discounted 10% the night of the event. A delectable selection of appetizers, prepared fresh by Browne's own in-house chefs, Jason Kennedy and Richard Belanger, will accompany the wines for your refreshment. As usual, all our in-house smoked fish and everything in our cheese case will be 10% off during the tasting. * * * * * This is a casual, walk-up tasting open to the public. All are welcome, but guests must be 21 or older to participate in the tasting. Discounts do not combine with other discounts, rewards, or promotions.
