Wine Tasting in Puerto MorelosFollowing the overwhelming success of the 2012 season, The Little Mexican Cooking School and Casa Caribe are pleased to present the 2013 WINE TASTING AND FOOD PAIRING SERIES, offered in cooperation with La Europea and Cordon Bleu School of Gastronomy.

For 7 Friday evenings throughout the spring, the open-air terrace of Casa Caribe will be set for a civilized evening of history and appreciation of wine. "The best fun I had on holiday!" and "I have been looking forward to this all year." and "What a fun, interesting night!" are typical of the guest's comments.

Catriona Brown, Proprietor, says "In keeping with our tradition of enhancing the food culture of the region, our Wine Tastings offer an accessible, fun and educational experience. Tourists and locals alike more and more look to bring a learning experience home with them - something they can share with friends and family ".

This year there is a completely different set of wines suggested by the knowledgeable management of La Europea, selected as the best examples of the varieties. Thanks to La Europea, students will be able to have rapid home delivery of all the wines offered for tastings.
