Emparrado Blanco Semidulce in UK (White Wine)

Having stayed in Spain last summer (2012) for a few months I found myself drinking some wonderful Spanish white wine. The wine was bought in the local supermarket at only 1 Euro a bottle which was a bargain price compared to the UK cost of white wine. The name of wine was Emparrado Blanco Semidulce and it had a wonderful taste and I enjoyed it whilst having an evening meal.

Having been back in the UK several months I decided to look at buying some Emparrado at my local supermarket here in England. So far I am having no luck. I have recently contacted the company who owns Emparrado blanco semidulce and I am waiting a reply and will update you on their response.

I have noticed people asking about this type of wine on forums and blogs and I am now looking at importing the wine. If anybody finds this article please don’t hesitate to leave a comment or get in touch via my contact page to leave your interest and I will get back to you ASAP. Update you can now join a Facebook page I setup here: https://www.facebook.com/EmparradoWineUK

Here is a picture of the wine in question:
