txakoli!

So Spain has incredible food, that goes without saying.   To no surprise theyre pretty good at making wine here as well.  When you want a beautiful bold red, you go to Rioja.  When you want something slightly sparking with your pintxos theres nothing better than a tall pour of txakoli.  Its refreshing, acidic, dry and is great with all things Spanish.  One of the cool things about this wine is how it is poured.  The bartender pours it from high above their head into the glass in an effort to bring out more of the bubbles.  Check out this video from a tapas bar not too long ago!

P.S. Kudos if you can name the bar!
