The proximity to the sea, the Mediterranean climate, the granite components of the soil, the mistral wind, contribute all to the elegant character of Spèra, a fresh, fragrant and moderately alcoholic white wine. Best served cool, it’s a perfect aperitif or a welcome addition to enhance the delicious seafood dishes.
