SPAIN – The iconic wine of Spain.

Wine Feature. Spain – The third wine exporting country in the world Author:  Reno Spiteri – ACWP., CCTP., BBA (Project Management). Certified Wine Professional Certified Culinary Travel Professional Professional Member of the Society of Wine Educators (USA)   Spain is the third leading producer of wine in the world and trails only behind France and Italy. In 2016 Spain exported over $3 billion of wine all over the world. The Spanish produce some of the greatest red wine in the world, with various of their new, modern-style white wines receiving critical acclaim. Spain’s sparkling wines, known as Cava are second only to those of Champagne, and they also produce one of the world’s classic fortified wines viz: Sherry.   Having said this it would be logical to assume that the wines of Spain are as well-known as those of France and Italy, but surprisingly this is not the case.     W...

Scoglitti Restaurant – Valletta. Sunday lunch – 19th March, 2017.     Scoglitti Restaurant has been on the cards for a visit since it opened some three years ago. Situated in Boat Street, Valletta, underneath the bastions on the Marsamxett Harbour side, and directly facing Sliema across the harbour. Easy to be reached by ferry from Sliema as it stops directly alongside the restaurant a few metres away, as well as by car through Great Siege Road, Floriana or Marsamxett Road, Valletta. The restaurant is primarily a fresh fish and seafood establishment being owned by entrepreneurs in the fishing and fish trade, therefore fresh fish and seafood are never short or missing. This makes this place highly sought after by connoisseurs of Mediterranean and Sicilian cuisine. Exceptionally well-staffed by trained serving staff, led and supervised by Floren Sultana, the restaurant manager/owner, service was efficient a...
