Spain’s white grape of Rueda is getting its own day. National Verdejo Day is June 12, 2014. Dry and crisp with plenty of citrus and tropical fruits is the perfect wine for a warm summer day. Special events are taking place in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Miami. The Miami event is taking place at Soho Beach House on Miami Beach from 6:30pm-8:00pm. There will be tastings and DJs at all four events. The Miami tasting costs on $25 and you can get tickets at www.verdejodaymia.evenbrite.com. To find out about other events taking place visit www.VerdejoDay.com. If you can’t make it to any of these special events you can always visit your favorite Spanish restaurant of pick up a bottle at your favorite wine shop and enjoy a bottle at home. I would pick up a few bottles, invite some friends over and cook up a great Spanish meal. Enjoy!
