About this Conversation with a Winemaker

Eva Plazas Torné, winemaker at Caves Vilarnau, joined John Sporing, founder of A Life Well Drunk for a virtual wine tasting on August 20, 2020 at 6 PM EST.

For the August 20, 2020 tasting we sipped and discussed two wines:

  • NV Vilarnau Brut Reserva
  • NV Vilarnau Rosé Delicat Brut Reserva

We look forward to seeing everyone again soon in person, until then I hope to see you at future tastings, even if you do not have the wines!
