More about this wine from The village of Villanueva de Alcardete in the heart of La Mancha, Spain
In 1954, a ton of Spanish winegrowers aka 131 of them got together united by a determination to produce awesome and indigenous Spanish wines to sell across Spain. The group founded the San Isidro Cooperative, which is kinda like a wine Airbnb meaning that the production costs were shared by this crew of wine pros. They built a locals-only wine collaboration, but fifty plus years later, these winemakers have decided to open up the club to winos across the world.

Meet RAW Wines also known as Really Awesome Wines. We featured their first rosé release for international markets this past spring and we are back for more! The RAW White is a blend of iconic Spanish grapes Verdejo and Airén along with some classic Sauvignon Blanc. The nose is fresh-squeezed citrus fruit dripping over chalky, river stones and the sippin' is peachy and flowery with a steely and crisp finish.

Eating...

Pretending you're a badass Spanish chef and whipping up Croquetas de Jamón. The creamy ham and cheese is basically trying to ask this white vino out on a date.
