Pairing culture is back at Jean Leon

We’d been eagerly awaiting the moment when we’d be able to reopen our Visitor Center and now, after so many weeks of lockdown, that moment has finally arrived. This has definitely been a time when health has had to take priority and each of us was having to do our part to get through a very complicated situation that, unfortunately, has left and will leave many after-effects.

In any case, now that the health authorities have given the green light to reopening, here at Jean we’re starting things up again with more excitement than ever and adapting all of our activities to this new context we’re finding ourselves in. We’re certain that in a few weeks everything will be getting back to normal but, for now, we’d like to tell you about the new pairing-related activities we’re offering at our Visitor Center and how we’ve adapted them to comply with all the health protocols. We’ll be telling you about other topics, too, in future posts.

Perfect pairings

We are committed to offering activities in which our guests can be sure that they’re in a safe environment where all the appropriate protective measures have been taken. That’s why all of our activities will take place outdoors, taking advantage of the beautiful setting provided by our Jean Leon estate, spread over 150 hectares of vineyards and native plant life. Here are some details about the different options:

  • Between glasses (tastings in the Penedès sun)

The main idea behind this activity is to learn about our history, philosophy, and idiosyncrasies while tasting our four prestigious single vineyard wines surrounded by the matchless setting of the Jean Leon vineyards. Taking place on our private terrace with an amazing view of our historic vineyards, each guest will have their own space (chair and table) for the tasting, which will be done in a small group of no more than 8 people. The activity will always be carried out according to the health protocols in place and may be affected by possible last-minute changes.

The pleasure of the perfect pairing: Artisan cheeses

This option is for enjoying the art of choosing the ideal cheese for each Jean Leon wine, guided by our sommeliers. During this activity, you’ll learn which rules to follow when looking for the perfect cheese to go with your wine. Just like in the other activity, each guest will have their own space (chair and table) for the tasting, which will be done in a small group of no more than 8 people.

The pleasure of the perfect pairing: Ibérico ham

While the last activity was based around cheese, this one focuses on ham, one of the world’s tastiest treats. Guided by our sommeliers, you’ll taste four hams with different designations of origin, chosen to go with four of our wines.

In addition to the pairing-related activities, we’re also relaunching our introduction to tasting workshop. It’s the perfect activity to get started with learning about the world of wine in a practical and educational way, led by our sommeliers, by activating your senses of sight, smell, and taste.

How’s that for a start? Remember though, this is just the beginning and in upcoming posts, we’ll be telling you about more about what else is new at Jean Leon. Keep your eyes peeled!
