Wine in Spain flowing again

SPAIN’S wine consumption last year increased for the first time in decades, from between 2.5% and 4%, to hit 9.8 million hectolitres (one hectolitre equals 100 litres).

Taste of the good life

IT was pouring in Los Cristianos on Saturday, but everyone was delighted. The sun glinted off the glasses as the wine poured forth from some of the best Canarian bodegas. The seafront promenade was the place to be, with 14 wine stalls, complemented by six others serving food. From small tasters to full bottles, the […]

You’ll fall for artichokes

THE prime artichoke season is now here, which means vegetarians will be on the look-out for the thistle-related plants.
