Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
This wine hails from the Penedes region in north-eastern Spain, and is freshness in a bottle.
Made by one of Spain's most famous winemaking families, Torres, this is really zippy with lots of bright lemon fruit, and at under 12%
is a lighter take on a crisp, dry white.
Serve chilled as an aperitif, or with seafood.
This wine can be drunk now but will further improve if carefully stored for up to 1 year

Of the 2013 vintage, Hamish Anderson said: "Last year was the 51st vintage of Vina Sol, so it must be doing something right. On early labels it described itself as 'Spanish Chablis' (today highly illegal), which gives a good idea what it is about - fruity, with the kind of lip-smacking refreshment factor that demands a deep ice bucket and warm alfresco imbibing."

Of the 2013 vintage, Matthew Jukes said: "If you're looking for a low-priced 'house white' for picnics and alfresco parties, then dive into this innocent, citrus scented cracker. Drink it with everything - the Spanish eat all manner of tapas with this wine."
In 1962, having just completed his winemaking studies, Miguel A.Torres used a small winery in the Penedes mountains to ferment Parellada grapes at a low temperature and so Vina Sol came into being.
• Catalonia is one of the oldest winemaking regions in the whole of Europe, dating back to the time of the Phoenicians who arrived on the Iberian Peninsula long before the Romans • Food and wine culture goes hand in hand here; Catalan cooking is all about fresh produce, including fish which go perfectly with this wine • The soil type here is predominantly limestone, which is perfect for the viticulture here. White grapes dominate, with Cava grapes Parellada, Xare-lo and Macabeo being the most planted
