A juicy Spanish red from Valdepeñas in Castilla-La-Mancha, a region Jancis Robinson MW notes for its "soft, ripe wines", which "has developed a reputation for quality". Deliciously supple fruit and presented in a striking, sustainable paper bottle.

The sun blazes down on central Spain and its dozen white windmills looking out over the dusty plains of La Mancha. These windmills – or giants, as imagined by Don Quixote in the epic 17th century tale – are the namesake and inspiration behind this innovative, sustainable bottle. On a quest to make the wine industry more environmentally friendly, this supple Spanish red is packaged in 84% recycled paper, with a recyclable plastic pouch - much like a mini bag-in-box – so it has a carbon footprint six times lower than glass. And the wine itself captures the sunny plains of La Mancha. An oh-so juicy Merlot with bundles of red plum and berry aromas, and vanilla spice. Enjoy with Manchego cheese for the true La Mancha experience.
