Taste of Gran Canaria

The Canary Islands is a very well known Spanish region among the Irish population. Who’s never been to Tenerife or Lanzarote? However, the Canary Islands have much more to offer than great weather conditions, volcanic landscapes or high quality food. They also produce very unique wines, influenced by the volcanic ground.

The Cliff Town House on St. Stephen’s Green will bring a little piece of Gran Canaria to Dublin for the Spanish Wine Week with this Gran Canaria Wine Dinner.

Head Chef Sean Smith will pair Spanish dishes including grilled chorizo, quail egg with sourdough, octopus, paprika, olive oil and grilled white asparagus and tomato tartare clams with wines from the region. Each course and wine will be introduced by Sunday Business Post wine writer Tomas Clancy. Make sure to book your place!

Tickets: €79 per person
