One of the best known growers is the house of Torres, who produce the Gran Vina Sol, a popular feature in most UK wine shops and supermarkets.

Marques de  Caceres


Marques de Caceres - Rioja Blanco 2006
A rich, dry white wine from the heart of Rioja, using viura grapes to produce one of the world's best-selling white riojas. This wine is made from 100% Viura grapes and has a clear, pale straw and yellow colour. The nose is complex and filled with spicy aromas, oak, green apple, and a floral tone. In the mouth, fruit acidity will make your tongue and cheeks take notice. Flavours included green apple to mild citrus; vanilla and toasted oak tones are present. The finish is brisk, dry, with light fruit and some warmth.

   
 
Granja Fillaboa - Albarino Rias Baixas 2005
A converted farm of 27 hectares (66.7 acres) situated on the rivers Minho and Tea, was given over to the sole production of Albariño grapes.  It produces great fruit with oily lemon hints and very clean and refreshing wine.  Overall colour is yellow green with aromas of exotic flowers, and taste is definitely zesty and racy in style.

El Prado
El Prado Macabeo Chardonnay
"A great everyday wine made in the Tarragona region of eastern Spain, an historic winemaking area that has been producing wine since Roman times. This is produced mainly from a grape unique to Spain, the zesty Macabeo, rounded out with a touch of Chardonnay. The Macabeo gives this wine a crisp flavour, softened by the peachy influence of the Chardonnay."
   
  Marino White
This is a simple, fruity wine whose grapes are sourced from various regions of spain.  If you want a reliable mediterranean style drink made using modern techniques look no further. Berberana Wineries originated in a small family winery in Ollauri in the Rioja Alta Region in 1877.
  Marino White
Cune Monopole
Cune Monopole Rioja Blanco 2005 Spain,  Waitrose
The Viura grape produces a marvellously rich and creamy, soft-fruit style white Rioja that is full of elegance and charm. Immediate citrus character on the palate, this wine benefits from fermentation in cask, which rounds out the palate. A persistent finish that comes from integrated mild toasty oak. It was winner of an IWC Bronze medal for its 2004 vintage.
