Wines from Spain is hosting a showcase dinner at Ballyvolane House later this month, working with the finest bodegas across the Navarra region to choose stand-out wines to complement each course.
The Navarra dinner to celebrate San Fermín in Ballyvolane House takes place on Tuesday, July 24th and wines will be introduced by Ernie Whalley, renowned restaurant critic and wine writer.
Beginning at 7pm, the five-course tasting menu with matching wines will be held on long tables in Ballyvolane’s gorgeous gardens.
Located in northern Spain, close to the Pyrenees, wine has been produced in the unique wine region of Navarra since Roman times.
