Three Refreshing Spanish Wine Drinks

Spain is home to many incredible wines. Nothing is more Spanish, though, than sitting outside munching on small plates of tapas or a magnificent paella and sipping on a cool Sangria, the refreshing fruit marinated wine drink Spain is so famous for. Another drink that embraces Spain’s wines, especially from the Rioja and Priorat regions is Tinto de Verano, red wine blended with lemon soda and served over ice.

Three Refreshing Spanish Wine Drinks

Red wine sangria and tinto de verano are two Spanish drinks that inevitably emerge as the weather warms up. The 3rd drink, a white wine sangria, is not often found in Spain but provides the same experience for white wine lovers everywhere.
