Gravy has teamed up yet again with The Raleigh Wine Shop for a stunning five-course wine dinner, all focused on tastes of Spain. The dinner will be hosted by Mark Diamond, a Spanish wine specialist from Europvin, which specializes in high-quality artisanal wines from France, Spain, Portugal, Italy and Hungary. Mark has had a passion for wine ever since he discovered that fermented grape juice tasted more interesting than the freshly squeezed version. With a degree in wine marketing from Adelaide University and a background harvesting and making wines at various Barossa Valley wineries, Mark now has a passion for Spanish wines after several trips exploring Spanish wineries in recent years.
