#Repost @sevenfiftydaily ・・・ Owned by the Spanish Royal Family, Bodegas los Infantes de Orleans Borbón is a classically built winery within Sanlúcar de Barrameda, the seaside region authorized for Manzanilla and which encourages a specific development of flor. Aged in historic soleras, the fino-style sherry features lemon and saline notes, and is made from 100% Palomino grapes cultivated on the renowned chalk Albariza soil. | 📸 by @quinndar Orleans Borbón Manzanilla, is the perfect match for a variety of salty dishes including crisped calamari, cured meats, olives, almonds, cheese and our favorite pairing: a savory cup of tomato gazpacho. It will also be our sip of choice while watching tonight’s exciting match! #VamosRafa 🎾

It’s harvest season at Azores Wine Company on the island of Pico, known as the “black island” due to the volcanic basalt in the soil 🌋 Portuguese winemaker António Maçanita (also the winemaker at FitaPreta in the Alentejo) founded Azores Wine Company in 2014 with his two partners, Paulo Machado and Filipe Rocha. Their sustainably-grown vineyards are less than 50m from the Atlantic, with truly breathtaking views. Arinto dos Açores is a grape variety indigenous to the Azores that shares the acidity and potential for longevity of the mainland variety that shares its name, however, the two are not related. Azores Wine Company’s Arinto dos Açores grapes are hand-harvested and triaged carefully. The characteristics of the grape variety, coupled with Pico’s unique terroir, impart incredible minerality, purity and unmistakable salinity to the wine. To learn more about Azores Wine Company’s wines, visit our website (link in bio).
Tonight we will be showing these fantastic four wines at the @winesfromspain sponsored dinner for 180 sommelier volunteers and master sommelier room captains at @texsom . Mention @oleobrigado in your posts or stories if you are joining us. We can’t wait to see you there! 🇪🇸🇺🇸 #WFSxTEXSOM #texsom2019
Thank you to all of the TEXSOM volunteers who attended our luncheon today❗️ • #repost • @texsom • It’s the 20th anniversary of @oleobrigado, one of the only national importers dedicated solely to Spanish and Portuguese wines, and they still managed to share a wine that predates their company’s founding. Not only did our volunteers get to try the 1985 Caves São João Baga from Bairrada, but they had an opportunity to practice their blind tasting skills, feeding TexSom’s mission to promote education in our wine community. #texsom Second 📸 captured by @queenofgrapes
We are on our way to TEXSOM! Our very own Erin Drain and Orr Reches will take conference volunteers on a tour of “1,000 Years of Iberian History in 8 Bottles of Wine” tomorrow. ✨Four winners of the blind tasting will receive one of these spectacular magnums! Let us know if you’ll be at the conference in Dallas and give us a shout @oleobrigado if you’re attending the lunch. 🍽
It’s wine o’clock! Time to enjoy a juicy, refreshing glass of Armas de Guerra Rosado. This wine is made from mencía grapes 🍇 and produced by the oldest winery in Bierzo, Spain! What’s in your glass?
