Sisseck and Palacios Together

I recently stumbled across an article about a lunch put on at New York’s Daniel Restaurant exclusively for wine writers, educators, sommeliers and retailers. Peter Sisseck(Pingus) and Alvaro Palacios (Palacios Remondo of Rioja and Finca Dofí of the Priorato) had been invited to show off their wines, and talk a bit about the level of quality that they maintain in their wines. Hosted by ICEX, the branch of government here in Spain who is both responsible for foreign trade and for whom can be a perpetual thorn in the side of anyone trying to help foreign trade here in Spain, have a series of video interviews in English on their site with the people involved with this dinner.

Although the videos with Peter and Alavaro are fun to see, I don’t think ardent followers of their lives will find anything new on the video. On the other hand, it is great to hear from two of Spain’s wine legends. Have a look and let me know what you think.
