Meet The Winemaker 2020
Online Spanish Wine Tasting from the Vineyard with English Wine Makers
How to change your career, your workplace and your life!
Meet Thomas and Emma Holt, who did exactly that! Hear how they started their journey in Shropshire, followed their dream and finished up making their own wines in a vineyard in Spain.
“Paso-Primero is not just the name of our company, it’s the name of our most beloved wines. Roughly translated as ‘first step’ these wines represent our first foray into professional wine production for ourselves. For the first time in our lives we weren’t working for anyone else and following their rules, we were making our own rules. Paso-Primero Tinto and Blanco are our wines, in our style and they have formed the bedrock of our business ever since.”
Join us as we taste three wines from the Paso-Primero range, familiar grape varieties, but quite unusual blends – we’ve tasted them, they are delicious!
1) Blanco, made from Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer and Riesling – a fresh clean aromatic wine.
2) Rosado, made from Merlot (!) a full-bodied rosé, bursting with bright red cherries.
3) Tinto, made from Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, Garnacha and Syrah, “young and prod of it!” med-full body, cherry and bramble.
“Although these wines have a thread of continuity running through them, we are still making vintage wines. This means that while there is a ‘Paso-Primero’ style you can rely on, there will be subtle changes each year. We want to involve you in the winemaking process as much as possible, so we’ll try to highlight the differences that each year brings. If the blend changes or if we try something new, then we will share this information with you and explain our reasoning. Rest assured that everything we do is to increase quality and make the best wines we possibly can.”
We love this ethos, making the wine to suit the vintage, i.e. what happened to the grapes when they were growing in the vineyard. Find out more, as you’ll have the chance to ask Thomas about his wines on this event. An interactive opportunity to meet the winemaker.
These wines are suitable for anyone following a vegan diet.
