Cheers to spirits and Hispanic food! Are you a person who is really into wine and loves talking about it? Then for sure you are an example of a wine enthusiast!

According to the Wine Blog, there's a fine line between "wine snob" and "wine enthusiast." Snobbery is "one who blatantly imitates, fawningly admires, or vulgarly seeks association with those regarded as social superiors," but to wine enthusiast, the wine’s aromas and the sip of it, is like tasting "the nectar of the gods."

Vivanco is encouraging to all the Latin Times readers to fed the flame of the wine culture by pairing four of their best wines with eight Hispanic great dishes.

As leaders in the Spanish wine sector, Vivanco wines feature native Spanish varieties such as Tempranillo, Garnaca, Viura and Malvasia among others.  The wines have received numerous 90 point plus ratings from the wine advocate and wine spectator, among others.
