Nice Paella Wine

Posted on: June 11th, 2013 by James No Comments

I was invited to some friends home for dinner the other evening and they were serving paella prepared over an open fire on their patio so I went in search of a nice Spanish red to take with me.  I immediately thought of something from Rioja and found a wonderful Tempranillo that was full-bodied, smooth, and complemented the flavors of the paella beautifully.  This 2007 Vina Eguia Rioja Reserva is a great addition to my cellar.

Los Dos Grenache – Syrah 2010

At Father Fats in downtown Stevens Point, WI the other night I ordered the 2010 Los Dos Campo de Borja Grenache – Syrah.  From Aragon and the slopes on the edge of the Sierra Iberica,  this wine blends 15% Syrah with rich Grenache produced from 35 to 50 year old vines.  As Father Fats is a tapas restaurant, I found this wine to be very pleasant with all of the various dishes we ordered and shared throughout the evening, from the cheese board starters all the way through to dessert.

Beso de Vino!

Here is a fun wine that $10 is a very nice every day, drinkable wine.  With a nice blend of 85% syrah, and 15% garnacha, Beso de Vino from Spain could quickly become a staple in my cellar.  Plus, how could anyone resist the cute bull kissing a glass of wine on the label?
