These will be paired with different tapas to enhance the flavours of both the food and Sherry. Hosted by:
Myrna Santos Mayor, Caballero/Bodega Lustau Director of North America | In 1999 Myrna entered the Spanish wine industry and became especially enamoured by fortified wines. Working with the Osborne family group for a period of almost 10 years managing markets in US and Central America she began a new career path. At that time she developed an in-depth knowledge of Sherry and the Solera process for aging wines that provided education to trade and consumers alike while sparking an interest for the old-world artisanal wines.
In early 2009 she joined DZ Licores as US Manager for the group’s portfolio of Wines and Spirits, another Spanish owned company, leading the expansion of its flagship brand. Her passion for Sherry wines directed her steps in 2015 to Grupo Caballero as Director for No. America working for all portfolio brands including the well-known premium Sherries of the House of Lustau.
Alex Carriere, Chef – Cabrito Tapas | Chef Alex originates from France where he trained over a decade in 2 and 3 Michelin star restaurants. Since moving to Canada in 2008 he has spent his time cooking at DB Bistro/Lumiere, Nuba Restaurant Group, Le Parisien and Les Faux Bourgeois. Growing up he spent a lot of time in Spain as his father's home is in the Pyrenees and his love of tapas and the overall love of the country was the initial inspiration to open “Baby Goat”.
