Tapena Verdejo is a delightful white that pairs well with many different dishes. This pale-yellow-hued wine has a vibrant nose with an array of aromas of tropical fruits over a backdrop of ripe peaches. The palate is full of bright stone fruit that is beautifully balanced with a crisp, refreshing acidity and a lingering finish with a hint of minerality. Try it with grilled salmon, lemon chicken, or creamy lighter cheeses such as goat cheese or a fresh summer salad.
100% Verdejo. Bottled by Unio Cellers del Noya (UCSA), a division of Freixenet, in Spain.

Tapena (tah-PAY-nyah) is the ideal complement for an evening of food and conversation among close friends. In Spain, going for tapas (TAH-paz) is the American equivalent of barhopping with an epicurean twist. At every taberna, tapas (small plates) are served communal style, each person is armed with a glass of wine and a fork. Pena (PAY-nyah) is slang for a group of close friends. Put the two together with Tapena, and everyone is speaking the same language!
