Lunyalita exclusive Pingus wine tasting

Wine Tasting


Date:25 October



Have you ever wondered what an expensive bottle of wine tastes like? One that you might pay £1500-£2000 for? But not wanting or able to fork out that much?  Then this could be the event for you.

Come along to Lunyalita for a night of Pingus Wine Tasting. 

This is the most exceptional tasting of Spanish wine in the UK. This exclusive night provides a one-off opportunity to taste the uber-fantastic Pingus wine from Ribera del Duero in Spain. Produced by the world renowned Peter Sissek, Robert Parker gave this wine an unprecedented 100 points. One of the most sought after reds in the world, tonight, we will open our last bottle and taste the fabulous 2008, along with a selection of rare and boutique wines carefully curated by the world’s leading English language Spanish wine expert, Carlos Read (a total value in excess of £2500 worth of wine). Carlos will be leading the tasting and offering his own unique and entertaining insights from the world of Spanish fine, rare and boutique wines.

Some of these wines are unavailable or very difficult to obtain and we have worked with Carlos, exploring his extensive private cellars to develop this list. On the night, as well as the Pingus, you will get to taste:

  • La Mar from Terras Gauda, D.O. Rias Baixas, made from the rare and indigenous Galician Caíño Blanco
  • Carlos Sancha Maturana Blanca 2017, D.O.C.q.a Rioja
