Faustino Wines for Christmas

 

If you’re looking for a wine to pair with your Christmas dinner or make a mulled wine with, why not try Faustino Riojas from Spain. Faustino Wines are all available from supermarkets including Tesco, Asda and Ocado for easy Christmas shopping this year.

Faustino Gran Reserva Rioja

Rioja, although not the first bottle you think of to pair with turkey, is always a crowd-pleaser. Faustino Gran Reserva is a perfect special occasion wine that is both complex and elegant, with fruity and spicy notes, as well as with pleasant notes from the barrel ageing and a long and silky finish.
Faustino Gran Reserva RRP: £17.00 for a 75cl bottle | Available from Asda, Tesco & Ocado
