The Portuguese explores brought silks and spice back from their expeditions to the Orient, so why shouldn’t a winery create a wine brand with that name? Especially when ‘silky smooth’ is today’s most popular style of red. A slight sweetness is also part of the experience here, as it is in most best selling wines. You’ll be popular pouring the crowd-pleasing qualities of Silk & Spice over the Holidays, (even if it’s not to your favourite wine style).
