The rain in Spain...
Posted 3 years ago by Briana Lucas
Spain has a long history of producing wine, yet Spanish wines tend to be less well-known internationally than those from France or Italy. You might even be surprised to learn that Spain has more land dedicated to growing vines than any other country!
There is an exciting world of Spanish wines to discover – wines of unprecedented quality, diversity and value. From robust reds and crisp whites, to refreshing rosés and sparkling cavas – you’ll find plenty to choose from!
This week, we are featuring a selection of Spanish wines from our portfolio. This is by no means a comprehensive list! To learn more about our entire selection of Spanish wines, talk to your rep.
