Flight Night at SOHO is obviously one of our favorite days of the week, but there is a way that it can only get better: the weather cooperates in Atlanta, and patio season begins! In true spanish style, our wines and tapas pairings are best enjoyed al fresco this particular time of the year; once winter is finally behind us, and before hot summers descend. So let’s raise a glass to perfect patio weather and delicious spanish wines this week! Won’t you join us?

This Flight Night begins on Wednesday, April 10th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through April 16th.

Viñedo de Emilio Rojo.

First, SOHO will pour a Gotas de Mar Rias Baixas Albarino 2017 from Rias Baixas.  The winemaker offers,

“Brilliant pale lemon color. Intense stringent aromas of peaches, white flowers, stony minerals and a hint of fresh sea breeze. The palate offers an energetic combination steely acidity with charming peachy fruit and stony minerals. It finishes clean with a mouth watering acidity and long complex persistency.”

Next, SOHO will pour a Bodegas Avancia Godello 2016 from Valdeorras. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“Sourced from one of the oldest, most traditional vineyards planted in Valdeorras, Avancia Godello expresses the authenticity the history of Valdeorras and the oldest Godello clones in the world. A completely unique white wine that ages beautifully and has been recognized by Robert Parker as Spain’s best Godello. Godello was almost extinct at the end of the 1980’s, so it is extremely rare to find a Godello produced from a single vineyard planted in 1904.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Torres Ribera del Duero Celeste Crianza 2015 from the Ribera del duero. Notes on the wine,

“Cherry red color with garnet highlights. Delicious, voluptuous aroma of very ripe black fruit (blueberries) with fine roasted coffee and dried fruit (dried plum) notes. Dense, fleshy, with sensuous flavor sensations that are impressively persistent.”

SOHO’s Executive Chef Joey Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
