Tapas and Red Wine...
Here at Orce Serrano Hams we love doing traditional - Andalucian products exactly as they should be! On our recent quest for local wine we found an age old "bodega" one of only a few still producing good local Spanish wines in the region. An undiscovered secret lay below the house - a fully restored bodega including refurbished wine presses and "tinaja's" the enormous ceramic wine vats used to age the wine in days gone by.
Quite a visit! and of course we had to sample the wines on offer. Owner Manolo russled up some tapas and the tasting session began.
Perfect partners for Spanish wine:
Serrano Ham / Iberico ham
Cheese (especially goats cheese) with apple slices or grapes
Queen olives / black olives
