A Spanish Fiesta...
















Two lots of Torres turned a windy Sunday evening into a Spanish Fiesta!
The first Torres, fiery Fernando helped Spain lift the Euro 2008 Cup with the only goal of the match.






And the second Torres, mesmerising Esmeralda kept us company with a few Tapas while we watched a lesson in football. We discovered her back in 1992 in a beautiful restaurant on the Balearic island of Majorca. We fell in love and, back in England we scoured the country for a supplier of this special wine, a delicate marriage Moscatel and Gew├╝rtztraminer. One of our suppliers came up trumps and Vi├▒a Esmeralda has featured in our wine list ever since.

Both Torreses tower about the rest on a windy Sunday evening in Hartlepool...

I don't think we have this here, but we have a red wine Torres, but it's a bit too plumy and strong for me.

That I have to try:)

Bella, I really believe that the Torres family have cracked the art of winemaking.
I especially love their Chilean range.

Pat, you won't be disappointed if you like Alsace wines or Rieslings...

I will look for it. Sounds like an interesting blend.
My maiden name is Della Torre but it's Italian. And I do believe I once found an Italian Della Torre wine. Didn't like it.

Am I likely to find it in Tesco's. I so like those wines.

Hey!
How's things? :O)
Let's not forget that the Torres family make pretty fine brandy too!

Mary, I thought you had some Italian blood judging by your famous Lasagne. Our alter-egos often fall short of expectation, don't they?

Pat, I don't think you'll find it at Tesco but try Oddbins.

Hiya, Trac. Nice to hear from you.
Yes, they do make a good Brandy too.
