Bodgas Emilio Moro brought a taste of Spain to France, entertaining international partners and press on 17 June 2013.
President of Emilio Moro, José Moro hosted an intimate evening in true fiesta style.
A beautiful 11th century converted windmill (Le Moulin de Canteloup) was chosen for this informal evening of traditional food and wine from Ribera del Duero.
Tapas including freshly cut jamón Serrano, Manchego cheese and white asparagus were served followed by a succulent 21 day old lamb brought from Spain especially for the occasion. The lamb was grilled on a barbecue of Emilio Moro vine stems. Wines served included Malleolus de Sanchomartin 2008, Malleolus de Valderramio 2008 and Malabrigo 2009.
At the end of the evening a few bottles of Emilio Moro Clon de la Familia were offered. This wine is produced and sold exclusivity for the Fundacion Emilio Morro with all proceeds used to fund charitable projects, in particular providing water to the most impoverished countries and people in the world.Javier Moro, vice president, and guests brought the evening to a crescendo in true Spanish style playing guitars and singing both popular and traditional Spanish songs.
A good time was had by all.
