Event description

Description

Grand Cata, a local Latin wine shop in Shaw, will host a special wine tasting for Conversational DC, conducted entirely in Spanish. Admission includes a taste of four wines and 10% off all wine in the store. In Spanish, staff will provide an explanation of the systematic approach to wine tasting, regions, climate, wine-making techniques, history, and food pairing suggestions.

Worried about vocabulary? No problem. We'll be providing a cheat sheet with a glossary of must-know wine terms in Spanish.

Throughout the tasting, guests will have a chance to chat with one another in Spanish. No English allowed. Bringing a buddy is encouraged! Like our other events, guests can choose to wear "listener" stickers; listeners are language-lovers that are just there to observe and absorb.


FAQs


What if I’m too scared to speak?

Totally understand. It's nerve-wracking to put yourself out there and make mistakes. Fortunately, you'll be surrounded by people making mistakes. To make it easier, bring a buddy. We will also have "listener" stickers for those who just want to absorb.


Do I have enough language experience to do this?

People that have zero language experience are still welcome to come, but due to the subject matter, we highly suggest having basic Spanish skills. We will have a cheat sheet of wine-related vocabulary to help all guests.


Is the event free?

Unlike our other events, this event requires a purchase. The ticket includes a tasting of four wines and a 10% discount.


Can I purchase other drinks?

This is not a bar, so the only drinks available will be those poured for the tasting. You can buy a bottle at the end of the tasting (with your 10% discount), but you will have to take it to go.


How do I know there will be good speakers there?

The staff members of Grand Cata conducting the tasting speak Spanish fluently. We also make sure we have Facilitators that are fluent speakers at the event.


Will there be future events in other languages?

Yes! If you have a specific interest, email conversationaldc@gmail.com.
