Spanish white wines are not as popular as red wines. However, in recent years white grape drinks have been steadily gaining market share. Their secret lies in their lightness, originality of bouquets and refreshing acidity. Viura is still the most popular grape variety. It is used to make dry and sparkling drinks. Other popular varieties are Malvasia, Albarinho and Verdejo. Their bouquet has notes of flowers and original tropical fruits, fresh herbs, citrus and pepper. The best white wines are produced in Rioja and Rueda. They are perfectly suited to traditional Mediterranean cuisine.
