Barolo red: The best wines of Spain
Posted On July 21, 2021
Spanish wine makers have been struggling to find a way to compete with the global wine market since the mid-1990s, when the country started producing some of the world’s most expensive wines.
But the drought has taken a toll, with many of the nation’s winemakers reporting lower sales.
The Barolo Red Wine Company in Spain said on Wednesday it would shut down its production, with a majority of its winemaking facilities expected to close.
The wine company said it was cutting its production by about 50 percent from last year.
The Barolo wines are made with grapes grown in a vineyard that produces about 200 million hectolitres (2.4 billion gallons) of grapes annually.
Barolo, or Baroque, is a region of Spain that includes the foothills of the Andes.
The region’s wines are also known for being rich in red grape juice.
The wines are generally aged for a year or more, but Barolo’s wine is aging for decades.
The company said in a statement that its wines will remain on the market and be available for purchase for about three months after they are shipped from the United States.
Barolo’s winemaker, Franco Tordo, said in the statement that the company was in talks with buyers to continue producing wine.
Barlo is a red wine that has a slightly more acidic taste than most other red wines.
The grapes are grown in the foothill of the Atacama Desert.
Baro is also a region with a large red wine producer in Argentina.
