Commenting on the event, Simon commented: “I’m a massive fan of Spanish wine and I’ve wanted to get an event with Alfredo Arribas in the diary for some time, I’m really looking forward to it. The first Portal de Priorat I tried was the 4 Gotes and I instantly knew I could pair the flavours perfectly with some of my creations.

“Every wine from the brand tastes fresh, exuberating Spanish fruits and flavours, this is why we’ve stocked the products for several years.”
