Casa del Arco, Spain
Whether around the kitchen table, in a restaurant or even on the beach what drives these moments is great quality raw material like ripe tomatoes from the “huerta”, bomba rice from the Ebro delta, delicious Jamon or maybe just the freshest fish and of course all accompanied by a glass of vino. There is no need for complexity or pretension and there is nothing more Spanish than a plate of gambas washed down with a glass of white wine or a bowl of Chorizo con patatas with a warming fruity red. At its simplest Spanish wine made from Spanish grape varieties is the chips to your fish, the Fred to your Ginger, the bucket for your spade, the cream for your strawberries or whatever pairing you care to imagine – a glass of Tinto or Blanco is the partner for any meal. This is just what Casa del Arco is. Simple, uncomplicated, unpretentious fruity red and white wine made from traditional Spanish grape varieties harvested in the sun and transformed into a quenching beverage in the age old traditions of rural Spanish wine making.Life is too sure for pontification – just sit down, unwrap a glass and enjoy!
