This is the ideal wine choice to create the drink of summer, "Tinto de Verano"
"Tintos" (for short) are an incredibly refreshing (and addictive) way to enjoy the summer. Traditionally consumed in ample quantities & served in the "chiringuitos" that line the Spanish beaches.
To make your own "tintos" at home fill a pint glass with ice. Pour to half way mark with Viña Borgia wine & then fill to top of glass with Sprite. Drink with straw and thank us later for this simple, fun & refreshing drink.
From the winemaker... if you prefer to drink this wine in a wine glass!
