Six sensational Spanish #wines you’ve never heard of

7 Nov

Tired of Tempranillo? Had your fill of Rioja? Whether the answer is or no, Señorita Vino believes that variety is the spice of life, which is why I’d like to introduce you to six off-the-grid Spanish wines I think you’ll enjoy.

Read all about them in my latest article for Latina magazine’s TheLatinKitchen.com.

Spain produces some fabulous, quality wines for a fraction of what you’d pay for similar wines from other countries. So if you’re looking for an excuse to throw a tapas party–or if you’re in the mood for something new, now’s your chance to go for it without breaking the bank.

MENCIA

My personal fave was Mencía, a gorgeous red with luscious plum and cherry aromas, rounded out with candied violet notes. Pour yourself a glass, pile on the jamón serrano, queue up an Almodóvar flick and call it a relaxing night en casa.

¡Salud!
