Serving and consuming

Fino with food

It is an ideal aperitif wine and goes well with all types of tapa, especially olives, nuts and Iberian cured ham.

Also providing the perfect companion for shellfish and fish, especially those with a marked salty taste (anchovies) or even raw (sashimi).

Its low acetic acid content combines exceptionally well with dishes of marked acidity (vinaigrette salads, marinades, etc.) as well as with cold soups (gazpacho, ajo blanco, etc.).

  • Always serve chilled

    Use an ice bucket with both ice and water to serve chilled between 6º & 8º C.

  • Perfect for Tapas

    It adapts perfectly to a diverse range of salty and intense flavours.

  • Style of Glass

    In traditional wide-rimmed catavinos, or in white wine glasses.
