The Spanish wine story is long and begins far in the past before records were kept. The Phoenicians arrived there 3,000 years ago and found a developed and well-established wine culture with which to trade. The Romans would come and conquer and bring new techniques to help support the ever-expanding Roman thirst for the vino. After Rome fell, the Visigoth’s continued the viticulture tradition, but the Moors invaded in the 8th century and wreaked havoc on the industry with their ban on alcohol consumption.
In 2004, it was chosen as the official reception drink at the Spanish Royal Wedding, making it an elegant choice for any summer occasion.
