Manchuela (S3/E5)

Today’s guest, Juan Antonio Ponce from Bodegas y Viñedos Ponce, comes from Manchuela, a lesser known but emerging region in Spain.

For this wine, Andreas gives a short lesson about Iberico pork, the healthy meat from Spain, from which he creates stuffed schnitzels. The crisp acidity of the Bobal wine fits perfectly with the creaminess of the dish, if he may say so himself.

The Netherlands (S3/E6)

For someone who suffers from severe homesickness, like today's guest Adam Dijkstra from De Colonjes, there is nothing better than being able to make wines in your home country. In this case: the northern wine country The Netherlands, where the vines get older and the wines get better every year. Not only due to climate change, but also due to new grape varieties, like Helios and Riesèl, which suit the climate of the northern countries very well. Host Andreas Larsson, being Nordic as a Viking, knows how to get by with a matching dish.
