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.

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.


About Arrow Wine and Cheese: We are a "neighborhood" store with a national reputation. We taste between 400 and 600 wines a month to select the best wines and wine values for our customers. We travel to the wineries to hand select what we sell. We carry hard-to-find wines with character and uniqueness that speak of the place that they were grown in. We are about wines that offer "real value." We support artisan wine makers, organic agriculture and hand harvesting. Our dedicated and passionate staff will cater to customers at any level of interest, consulting with you to select the perfect wine to fit your taste, meal, and budget, whether it's for your book club, wine-tasting club, dinner at home or to cellar for years.
We can also special order wines for you. All you have to do is ask. Our prices are competitive and often the lowest in the country. We negotiate the best price from distributors and pass that savings along to our customers. And our email offerings provide even greater discounts directly to you.
A wine doesn't have to be expensive; it has to offer real value and taste good. Our goal at Arrowine is to foster a welcoming environment that encourages people to explore. It's a place to learn, enjoy, and have fun. Our products need to offer real value and taste good. And we work harder than our competition to bring that to you!
