Welcome to TheWinePlace

Welcome to TheWinePlace, where you can find the finest wines from around the world imported into Spain.

If you, like most people, tend to have the same or very similar wine day in day out you’re only drinking Coke. By that I mean there are a lot of other soft drinks around like Pomegranate juice or Cherry Soda, whatever. You may say ‘but I like Coke’.  That’s fine, in which case this blog will not even get to you because you would not have joined The Wine Place.es.   So if you normally only drink Rioja, why not try a Malbec from Argentina or a Grenache/Shiraz from the Cote du Rhone in France?  Don’t worry about it if the first time you try something new that it doesn’t quite work for you, come back to it later.  We want to create an online conversation about the wines and the foods they are best accompanied by.

Over time you will understand better the differences between grape varieties such as Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Shiraz.
