Ask The Wine Ladies…

Dear Wine Ladies

Over the last little while it seems that Spanish wines seem to be popping up at various dinner parties and get together more and more. We really enjoyed one of our most recent white wine discoveries called  Viura (we think) which we were told was a Spanish wine that cost less than $15.00. Neither my boyfriend or I can remember where it came from in Spain and was wondering if this is the name of an area, a brand name or a town. Any additional info on this wine would be appreciated.
