Spanish winemakers are secretive about their art. Chris Elam, now of Prestige Wine, was fortunate to spend the past 15 years getting to know Spanish winemakers, exploring Spain's vineyards and tasting little-known Spanish wines. He'll share pointers on choosing, appreciating and pairing Spanish wines when he hosts the five-course tapas dinner with wine at Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar in Dunwoody on Friday, April 27 at 7 p.m.
Fleming's Chef and Partner Kenneth Bills' menu includes five tapas with four wine pairings: deep fried rice balls with saffron and serrano ham paired with Mas Fi, Brut Cava, Spain, NV; citrus-marinated seafood and shellfish with Bodegas Naia, Naia Verdejo, Rueda, Spain, 2010; marinated pork and vegetable skewers served with Bodegas Luzon, Luzon Verde Monastrell, Jumilla, Spain, 2010; Andalusian beef stew with Vinas Del Cenit, Venta Mazzaron Tempranillo, Zamora, Spain, 2009; and ending with classic Spanish flan. $85 per person (not including tax and gratuity).
