The wines below are, in our opinion, excellent wines to serve at any drinks party as they are wines that will appeal to many people without breaking the bank! The three Cavas are very well priced as we are importing these ourselves from a family owned winery in Vilafranca del Penedes and they are currently only available from us. Wines for drinks parties need to be easy drinking with the whites not too acidic and the reds not too heavy or tannic. Of course all of these wines suit many other occasions as well!
