Is it just me or is everyone and their mom in Europe right now? The streets of Berkeley are suspiciously quiet and every time I open Instagram there’s another distant acquaintance in a cantina, sipping an Aperol Spritz, captaining a small motorboat into a glassy shoal off the coast of Sardinia. Frankly, we’ve seen enough. So we’ve decided to take matters into our own hands and bring the Eurotrip to our backyard with a good old fashioned Paella Party.
Arnie Plowe, friend of the shop and rep for Beaune Imports, just so happens to be a serious and seasoned paella chef. We’ve tapped him to prepare a party-sized batch of paella and pour five Spanish wines that will transport you directly to Costa Brava. Arnie’s paella is the real deal and features a whopping five proteins: pork, chicken, squid, clams and shrimp. “Delicioso! Rico! Exquisito!” - Real reviews of Arnie’s paella.
Beyond the world-class paella, we’ll have a fun lineup of our favorite summer wines from across Spain–super delicious bubbles, summery rosé, one of our favorite reds from the mountains above Madrid and two standout whites (including a showstopper Marmajuelo from the Canary islands). ¡Salud!
