Young and light red wines
In summer, young and light red wines are an excellent choice. They are fresh, fruity and easy to drink, ideal to enjoy on a terrace or during an outdoor meal. Our recommendation is Viña Bujanda Organic Wine with a soft entry on the palate, very friendly, round and long aftertaste. This wine pairs perfectly with cheese and charcuterie platters.
Wines of native varieties
Opting for grapes that are perfectly integrated into their environment is always a good choice. In this case, Tempranillo has been adapting for centuries to the climate and orography of La Rioja, which makes it the absolute protagonist of its terroirs and a safe bet for Familia Martínez Bujanda. Viña Bujanda Tempranillo is a wine with notes of black and red fruits, such as cassis, blackberry and raspberry, with a slight reminiscence of cream caramel. The palate is soft on the palate, with an enveloping development and a very pleasant finish. It is especially suitable for tapas and snacks in general, we recommend it with pâtés and melted cheeses, as well as with sobrassada or Serrano ham.
Crianza red wines with character
If you are looking for a red wine with a little more complexity and character, we suggest you to try Finca Antigua Syrah Crianza . Aged for 14 months in barrels, this wine stands out for its notes of blue flowers such as violets, lilacs and licorice notes. Its balanced and elegant structure makes it the ideal companion for a summer barbecue, grilled meats or even a good paella.
Red wines in magnum format
Summer is also a time to get together, to share, to celebrate with friends and family. That is why we recommend a perfect option for group meetings, the magnum format. In addition to their advantage of aging well, these bottles are an ideal size for sharing fun moments and those long after-dinner conversations we love so much. In our online store (link) you can choose from several options for all tastes, but a bet that never fails is Cantos de Valpiedra Magnum . A wine with a sweet attack, showing great finesse and a very good balance between acidity and alcohol, which gives it a very fresh finish, ideal for these summer days.
Don’t let the summer heat stop you from enjoying a good red wine. In Familia Martínez Bujanda, we have carefully selected a variety of red wines that are perfectly adapted to this season. Whether you prefer a young and refreshing wine, one with character and complexity, or opt for larger formats that allow you to have a great time, we are sure you will find the perfect wine to accompany your moments of relaxation this summer.
