Don’t Leave your Ham Stand Alone, Get an Excellent Jamón!

Black Friday day and Ham Friday at San

Every fall we set aside a select few of our pata negra hams for our customers and release them in small limited quantities (170 units available today!) as they reach their optimal point of curation. These selected pieces has a really high weight (on average 8.3 kg!), the best curation point and the perfect value for money! Only 170 units! Will you lose yours?!

Our Best-Seller Case has Señorío de Cruces (Albariño of our confidence), some well-known Rioja semi-aged in barrel (Lar de Paula), the best Verdejo from the closest Appellation of Origin ( Bitácora Verdejo) and the flattered Vinem, we cannot help to offer the most competitive price for this case! Check your email for more information.

Hey! In case these 2 offers are not what you need right now, we will be launching our Xmas Newsletter shortly!

Happy Hamfriday!!

Casillero del Diablo Reserva Privada, Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

We are very excited to introduce Casillero del Diablo Reserva Privada 2014 as the first wine from South America we have on our wine profile! This Chilean wine has been awarded with 90 Parker Points on that particular vintage we have ready for our customers to taste it! And it keeps it up! Next vintage – 2015 – was very well positioned by Robert Parker too. Casillero del Diablo winery has been named for the 3rd year in a row as one of the most admirable and remarkable brands in the word by Masters of Wines, journalists, enologist and summillers. Constancy and improvement of wine quality, being the reflect of its country´s main features were within the key factors to award the wine with such a recognition.

We have decided to Casillero del Diablo Reserva Privada 2014 as a gift when buying our exceptional Serrano Ham ( you can also choose as an alternative option the holder and the knife if you still do not have one!) obtained from the back legs of white pigs, it has a remarkable flavor and aroma. This product comes from a selection of our best pigs in Castilla y Leon. Our hams are characterized by a thin layer of fat that provides a delicious flavor and is very meaty and juicy with a curation of at least 20 months following the traditional and natural way.

We cannot wait to advance that Casillero del Diablo Reserva Privada 2014 grapes are Cabernet Sauvignon grown at Maipo Valley. It spends 14 months in French barrel oak to adopt all the nuances – Chocolate, toffee and fine almond- and, as a result we have a very complex and concentrated wine. On Sight we have a brighting intense ruby-red wine. On the nose, black currant notes accompanied by red cherry and plum mingled with vibrant fresh black fruit. When in the mouth, elegant tannins and well balance fruit and oak along with a persistent finish.

And…guess what?! It pairs like heaven with the Serrano ham! All in all, an offer we could get to ourselves!

 

Salud!

 

Stock Up On The Best Wines for Xmas

It comes this time of the year when we want to stock up our cellar on a good selection of wines where we can find the perfect pairing with a wide range of food, that goes well wither with fish, meat, seafood, desserts… A Little bit of everything to match all our guest likings.

For a wine cellar at home, we recommend to choose a cold dark place where you can place your bottles, where temperature does not fluctuate to much and humidity is moderate. A cooler basement or a chiller area is enough! Having a cellar means that you have on hand that you want to drink, without having to go shopping. You also ensure that you have right there the wines that might not be at your local shop.   Also a cellar at home is about aged Wines, we are offering some aged Rioja on our Newsletter. We also recommend to think about what kind of food you eat at home, for instance, if your friends and family do not like to have sweet wine with desserts, it is better not buying 3 bottles of PX.

Buy for the current likings, but keep some space for those wines you have heard about or you have been recommended. A cellar wine do not have to be very expensive! Take a look to our offers to see we offer the best value for money.
