Tarantas Sparkling Spanish Wines… With the weather heating up and summer just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about refreshing options for the perfect picnic wine. Natural Merchants, LLC of Grants Pass, Ore. and Cartagena, Spain, introduces two new delightful wines from Spain — Tarantas Sparkling White and Rosé — that will make every summer picnic and meal a delicious celebration of the season.

Tarantas Sparkling Rosé is made from 100% Bobal, one of Spain’s most unique and popular grapes. In addition to the delightful flavor and bubbly essence of the wine, some of the highest tested levels of the natural antioxidant Resveratrol can be found in monovarietal wines from southeast Spain’s Bobal grape.

“The Bobal grape appears to have more faces than we imagined; here it is as a sparkling wine with dried strawberry notes in the nose and red currants in the mouth. The finish is soft, not sweet, and the gentle character of the wine belies its ability to handle stronger flavors, even grilled fish and chicken. Drink soon.” –Wines from Spain

Tarantas Sparkling White is made with a blend of Macabeo & Airén grapes, for a wonderfully dry effervescent wine.

“Two of the great merits of sparkling wine are its ability to cleanse the palate and to match up against a wide variety of foods. Even in this version’s softer and gentler, there is a citric tartness that proves this is a great foil for seafood and even fried foods. Drink soon.” – Wines from Spain

Tarantas Sparkling Rosé and White are produced by Spain’s Oldest Estate Bottled Winery, proudly made with hand-selected certified Organically Grown Grapes. Both wines are currently available at Whole Foods Nationwide, as well as select fine liquor stores and natural retail outlets across the country. Suggested retail price for either wine is $9.99.
