SPANISH Wine Tasting with tapas

Nothing evokes Spanish dreams more than an evening of good wine, glowy candles, great company and an array of colorful tapas. Tapas (singular, "tapa"), the small plate tradition from Spain, were originally small snacks served as "lids" top of wine glasses to keep flies away! These compact bites are designed to inspire conversation, as opposed to just accompanying it, and are also a fun way to gently introduce new and interesting foods....
