Wine on Wednesday - Vermouth Padro & Co
It’s Wine on Wednesday!! I’m Tanisha, a Certified Wine & Spirits Specialist. Wine is a lifestyle that's best enjoyed out and about. So, every Wednesday I’m in a different location talking about a different wine.
This week I'm touring the distillery Vermouth Padro & Co in Brafim (Tarragona), Spain
Winemaker, Mario García, combines spices, botanicals and roots with a base wine that they also make themselves, to obtain unique, high-quality vermouth coupages which is then allowed to age, or more importantly to “rest” in wooden barrels, some of which are as much as 80 years old. The vermouth is kept in these optimum conditions, gently acquiring its character, until it is time for bottling, which is also carried out at the Padró family winery.
