In 2013, he opened El Colmado, a Spanish tapas and wine bar at Gotham West Market in Hell’s Kitchen.
From June 15-17, Wines From Spain will return to its iconic Grand Tasting tent in the center of Wagner Park, joined by regional associations, importers and winery representatives, all pouring incredible wines from all corners of Spain.
