A Taste of Summer in Andorra

wine being poured

Summer is here, and we are swapping our vin chaud for a nice glass of something chilled and to keep with our Catalan roots our bottle of choice is always Andorran. Maybe this has something to do with the fact that Andorra is situated between the two great wine producing countries of Spain and France, or that the wine comes straight off the hills where we like to spend our winters on, but Andorran wine has a special flavour and is a tipple to be celebrated and enjoyed.

We thought we would share the love and introduce you to our favourite Andorran wine producers who create some award winning bottles that you need to try.
