Event Details

We cordially invite you to join us for a special Winemaker Dinner with Isaac Fernandez, Grapes of Spain and Gran Cata Wine Shop on Wednesday, September 26 from 6:30 to 9:30 in the evening at Joselito Casa de Comidas.


 

Guests will enjoy a Cava reception with welcome hors d'oeuvres from 6:30 - 7 p.m., followed by a five course menu prepared by Chef Sierra exclusively for this event.  Each course will be paired with winemaker Isaac Fernandez's illustrious wines.  Throughout the dinner, Isaac will explain the wines being served and discuss his philosophy on using indigenous grapes throughout Spain to produce some of the most high quality wines in the world.  Please scroll down to view our dinner menu for the evening.


 

About Isaac Fernandez:  Isaac Fernandez began exploring the world of Spanish wines in the late 1970s at Bodegas Mauro, working alongside his uncle, Mariano Garcia - the former winemaker at Vega Sicilia - to produce some of the finest wines in the region. He then transitioned into a successful career of consulting for many prestigious wineries with the goal of being able to produce wines using indigenous grapes throughout Spain. He seeks to respect the identity of each vineyard and to nurture wines that balance power, finesse and purity with the capacity to age. He produces a range of red, white and sparkling wines from six Denominations of Origin, including some of Spain’s most famous regions: Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Rueda and Cava.

About Grapes of Spain: Grapes of Spain, Inc. was established in November 2001, with its first container landing in the United States in Spring 2002, representing 8 producers. The company imports wines exclusively from Spain and currently represents 36 producers with a portfolio of 90+ wines from all corners of Spain. All of the wines are new to the U.S. market and are from family winegrowers and that focus only on high quality and limited production.

 

Our friends from Grand Cata will be here to sell you the wines at a special price that night:

Grand Cata: The store opened in March 2016, but the concept was founded in 2011. They spent time building their expertise in order to craft a unique experience that could bring the best of Latin America to our community in Washington, DC. They proudly represent the history and vibrant culture of the Caribbean, Central America, South America, and Spain, all integrated in a cultural retail space in the heart of the nation's capital.

Organizer

Joselito Casa de Comidas

Joselito Casa de Comidas, located at 660 Pennsylvania Avenue SE, was created by Javier Candon to bring a piece of Spain to the Eastern Market neighborhood of Capitol Hill. It is an intimate 70 seat eatery reminiscent of the timeless establishments found throughout Spain at the turn of the century.

 

Our menu reflects the traditional dishes from Spain prepared with amodern and creative twist.  Instead of reinventing the wheel on a cuisine we love so much, we choose to incorporate a bit of our own imagination and touches to our prized family recipes.
