Estadio’s Sebastian Zutant Gives a Porron Lesson

Taking a sip from this Spanish-style wine pitcher is like a classy form of a college drinking game.

The only thing more fun (and potentially messier) than playing with your food: playing with your wine. Estadio (1520 14th St., NW; 202-319-1404), the new Spanish spot in DC’s Logan Circle, serves a blend of white wine and house-made bitter lemon soda in a traditional Catalan wine pitcher called a porron. Its watering-can-like shape ensures minimal exposure to air, and its long spout allows you to stream the wine directly into your mouth—no glasses needed. Wine director Sebastian Zutant demonstrates how to use one in the video below.
