TAPAS

AT THE HEART OF SPANISH CULTURE

In Spain, enjoying good food, good wine and good company all go together in the the art of the tapeo (going for tapas). Any local bar in Spain will provide a dazzling array of tapas (small plates of food), for the locals to enjoy whilst they socialise and sip their drinks.

GOOD FOOD, GOOD WINE

THE PERFECT COMBINATION

Traditional tapas reflect the variety of fresh, local ingredients available across Spain and often vary from town to town. From olives to stuffed peppers, grilled sardines to the famous Jamón Ibérico, tapas come in all shapes and sizes and offer a huge variety of flavours. We believe good food deserves good wine, so Anciano is crafted to be the perfect accompaniment to the wholesome, rustic food of Spain.

HISTORIA

THE HISTORY OF TAPAS

According to legend, the term tapa originates from the Thirteenth Century, when King Alfonso X ‘The Wise’, was advised by his personal doctor that eating several small meals a day with wine would benefit his health. Alfonso then decreed that all inns across Spain must serve their wines with complimentary snacks, or tapas, for the patrons to enjoy. The inns began to compete to make the best snacks, and ever since, tapas have been at the heart of Spanish gastronomic culture.
