I know that many of you have been following the reports on the Telitec Tasting, in association with Blu Property Group.
In a nutshell the idea was to present a series of wine tastings paired with top end tapas in restaurants along the Costa Blanca, northwards from Albir, to Denia, calling in at Calpe, Moraira and Javea en route. The final event was at the outstanding Restaurante Republic, Denia Marina.
Jelle, the Dutch owner of Republic, is a keen aficionado of wine, consequently the restaurant’s wine list is impressive. This, in fact, made my task even more difficult – there were a lot of wines from which to choose!
Plus, the Head Chef is very inventive, creating gourmet tapas that stretch the imagination whilst following the mantra of top quality. From the moment I set foot in the restaurant, to discuss the idea and possible pairings, I knew it was going to be a great success!
