El Paseante, born to be discovered

Vinos El Paseante were born to reflect the origin of the most singular regions of Spain, with some of the most representative from each one. These regions are now at its peak and are meant to show to the wine lover the terroir character of each vineyard specially selected for this project.

Just like the traveller visits the land to watch the vine turn into the best wines of our country, these two bottle of El Paseante (=walker) arrived home with hardly noticing what we were receiving then, a couple of bottles that reflect its philosophy. A red wine elaborated from the mencía grape, autochthonous from Leon and Galicia, with full-bodied and very fruity wines (see that evening when a lady’s group – all over their 60s- decided to meet as they used to do every now and then, they had an entire bottle of Pétalos del Bierzo), or this popular Verdejo from Rueda – very suitable for any occasion-. Original and easy to drink wines, classy and perfect to introduce the wine lover into this singular but so traditional regions affordable for any one as these wines you can find them between 8€-9€ in Spain and Spanish online stores.
