calories in wines..

In the wine world the do not like to make declarations on the label. I do not know why? The whole world declare the ingredients used in their products, so why not wines?

We declare our ingredients on a special supplement which we provide on our site:

Mainly it is just  grapes we added (of course), and we added also:  yeast, bentonite ( to clarify the wines) and sulfite (to preserve the wines, as low as possible) oak from French barrels and that it is.

And a second thing is the calories, manly coming from the natural suckers of the grapes and the alcohol in the  wines.

What wine to drink with Herring?

The Raw fish match very well with the Terra Blanca. The acids in this wines with the Mediterrane character bring the herring and other raw fish or sushi to a higher level! 

The Terra Blanca is a mix of 55 % fresh Macabeo and 45 % of the white Garnacha, matured for 4 months on new French oak. A different wine, not everybody loves it , but you have to look for the right combinations with food.
  • gambas grilled with squeezed lemon
  • calamares a la romana with squeezed lemon
  • sushi & sashimi
  • lemon chicken dishes
  • pork dishes
  • all kinds of raw fish, like herring, suburb...........
