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 the Spring of 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 that focus only on high quality and limited production.
About Schneider's: Schneider's turned 74 in 2023 and is more forward-thinking than ever. Founded by Abe Genderson and his father-in-law, Max Schneider, it's now a 4th generation family-run business, a treasured institution in the nation's capital and one of America’s leading purveyors and importers of fine wines and spirits. The heart and soul of Schneider's is its historic storefront in Washington, DC, but there's more than meets the eye. Among other offerings, wine collectors come to Schneider's to sell their collections and purchase rare bottles, wedding couples come for expert beverage catering and customers across the country take advantage of a robust e-commerce site: cellar.com. Abe and Max would be proud.
We are looking forward to seeing you on Thursday, October 26th for this exclusive wine tasting dinner.
