Hand Selected Wines – Wine Tastings – Take Away Wines
Developing the wine list at Sol y Sombra is a labour of love for owner Cliodhna Foley, who is a certified Level III Sommelier. We believe in taking the mystique out of wine and making it accessible by providing unpretentious tasting notes to get you straight to the flavour that best suits your taste buds.
Cliodhna’s interest in wine dates back to the early 1990s when she travelled to France regularly with her father, Nick, to source wines for the family restaurant. She went on to work in the UK and Chile, where she further expanded her tastes and developed her palate,
While we have a natural affinity for Spain and lovingly import some of the country’s best wines, we also offer interesting and delicious varietals from other great wine-producing areas throughout the world, including Italy, France, Chile and Argentina. In general, we seek out smaller, lesser known producers making excellent wine. We usually find them off the beaten track and they all have one thing in common: they embody a sense of place and tradition while showing the character of the winemaker and his or her wine values.
Wine Tastings Throughout the year we host wine tastings that are lead by Cliodhna Foley (WSET Dip). We present a selection of 6-8 wines from the given region or theme of the evening. for more information or to find out when the next tasting is on visit our Occasions page, or sign up to our newsletter below.
