Somm Kit: Iberian Grilling Reds


THE MORE YOU KNOW, THE BETTER IT TASTES. That’s what the Somm Kits are all about.

Six FANTASTIC wines for enjoying with grilled food (especially Portuguese and Spanish), a 30+ minute video of us stepping through the selections, cellar tags, and more links for learning in this fun Somm Kit. Six reds, all good for summertime drinking (at the right temperature of course).

A $115.94 value for only $95.35 plus tax when you pick up the wines at North Loop Wine and Spirits (or have them delivered or shipped for a small charge). The $12 cost covers our work on the educational aspect, and is offset through the discount offered by North Loop Wine and Spirits. In the end, you learn AND you save!



The Somm Kit! Independent sommelier-picked gems of the wine world to keep you stocked up with exciting juice. 


The value of the Somm Kit: INSTANT access to tasting notes, cellar tags, food pairing ideas, articles, links, and a video of sommelier Jason Kallsen and Angela Kallsen tasting through these wines. Buying the wines through the Somm Kit is cheaper than going to the store and finding them yourself.

This particular pick:

  • Six amazing red wines from Spain and Portugal geared toward summertime drinking with grilled food.
  • A big time Rioja Reserva from one of the most historic producers of the region.
  • An unbelievable and perfectly aged Mencia from Berzio, one of the top under the radar spots of Spain.
  • Two super affordable porch pounder reds, one being a Grenache from the center of Spain (with a cool label).
  • Three reds of Portugal that show the range and diversity of Alentejo, Lisboa, and Douro.
  • The Douro red is made by a great friend of ours, from one of the top spots in the Douro Valley, from vines that are over 50 years old.
  • Overall, a great variety of wines to go with brats, burgers, dry aged steak, chicken, pork, veggies … you name it. If it’s smoky and off the grill, these are your wines!
