About This Wine:
Spain’s Cariñena wine region is one of the oldest wine-producing regions in Europe, with evidence that viticulture has been practiced there for more than 2,000 years. Both the Phoenicians and Romans were known for making wine, not only for their rulers but also for the masses.
The Phoenicians were the first to cultivate vines in the region, while the Romans planted more vineyards and introduced new grape varieties. Cariñena wine was a favorite of King Ferdinand I, who had a great interest in viticulture. Prominent philosophers such as Voltaire also admired its flavor, as did Spain’s famed painter, Francisco de Goya. Today, Cariñena is one of Spain’s top wine regions, with a strong focus on quality wine production.
The proof is in the pudding... or, more precisely, in the bottle. The 2021 Marques de Castillo Macabeo is engagingly floral and fruitful — a wine to be appreciated.
