Everyone gives their opinion: another way to get attention, anything goes to draw attention to a great wine, you have to maintain a point of irreverence... Do you remember some wine with a funny name?
We found all kinds of interesting, erotic and decidedly weird names. As rare as El perro verde (green dog), a wine which Angel Lorenzo Cachazo cellars elaborate with Verdejo grape in Rueda.
