Spanish Story was created by me, Paul Daman in 2014.
After my marketing studies in the Netherlands I moved to the marvelous city of Madrid, Spain in 1998. I created several businesses, always food related and import and export, mainly in Europe.
In the meantime Spanish wine got my attention and I became very enthusiastic and interested in Spanish wine. As a consumer, of course, but later also ideas came up to do something more with it.
In my honest opinion Spanish wine is among the best in the world. But also marketed in a clearly wrong way, especially in the past. Spain is the most widely planted wine producing nation in the world.
But prices are more or less the lowest in the world in general. What went wrong? A lack of export expertise and marketing know how?
This is how I came up with the brand Spanish Story and a few years later with Pulpoloco.We are now a few years on our way and selling our wines in several countries in Europe and Asia and last but not least in the USA. Full of new ideas for wine marketing we will see what the future will bring in this exciting wine world. New wines, sangria´s and brands will follow soon! Cheers, Paul
Spanish Story Cava & Sangría
Cava & Sangría , what can be more Spanish?
Our Cava is crafted in the heart of Cataluña, the world famous Cava region. Made with Macabeo, Parrellada and Xarel-lo grapes this is a classic Cava with lovely fine bubbles. Our Cava spent at least 10 months in the bottle before recorking. Other variables variables that make our Cava so special are moderate rainfall, intense sunshine and soft winds, all features of the Penedes region. Such conditions help the grape to mature properly, creating its distinctive aroma and cutting dry taste. We can also offer sweeter Cava´s, just how our customer wants it.
And for our fruit Sangría, only the best ingredients. Tempranillo and Macabeo grapes are the base for this typical Spanish drink. We add some natural fruit juices and fine spices such as cinnamon. A great summer and party drink to enjoy with your family and Friends! A fantastic taste of Spain!
All in all, a Spanish Story about two of the most famous Spanish beverages!
Some Sangría history…
Early Greeks and Romans mixed their wine with sugar, spices, and whatever was on hand. It was called “hippocras,” and it was sometimes heated like mulled wine. Hippocras is likely the common ancestor of both sangria and mulled wine, and was drunk everywhere because water was bacteria-filled and unsafe to drink. A touch of alcohol made the liquid drinkable, and mixing the watered-down wine gave it flavor. People who lived in modern-day Spain were doing something similar with grapevines planted by the Phoenicians around 1,100 B.C., and then with vines planted by the Romans after.
But in the 700s, the Spanish wine business, and by extension the Spanish sangria business, faltered. Islamic Moors conquered the peninsula in 711 A.D. Sangria didn’t return until the Moors’ rule ended in 1492, and with the return of wine there was the return of sangria.
Variations on house sangria — which means blood in Spanish, in reference to the red wine used — ruled in Spain. Traditionally, it’s been made with Spanish Tempranillo and other wine from Rioja with added citrus fruit. But even then, no Sangria was made the same.
In the 1700s and 1800s, a style of sangria was made in England and France using traditionally French grapes. There was also white sangria, sparkling sangria, and sangria made with peaches, which was called zurra. The drink in all its forms had flashes of popularity in the U.S. in Spanish restaurants and certain city alcoves.
Spanish Story. Concept
7 GRAPES – 4 DOs – ONE BRAND
Spanish wine is among the best in the world. Classic presentations of the wines are common. Not much importance is placed on the grape variety, but rather on the winery and region. Nothing wrong with that, but why not do it differently? Many countries put much more emphasis than Spain on the grape variety. Different grapes are getting more popular and the consumer orders his wine by grape name. The consumer also starts to get interested in other grapes, not only the most famous and widely planted. So, we started working out a new concept for Spanish Wines: different grapes under one brand name, starting with the 7 most typical Spanish ones — 7 grapes under one brand from 4 DOs:
- Spanish Story TEMPRANILLO · DOc Rioja Alta
- Spanish Story GARNACHA · DOc Rioja Alta
- Spanish Story VERDEJO · DO Rueda
- Spanish Story ALBARIÑO · DO Rias Baixas
- Spanish Story CAVA BRUT · DO Cava
- Spanish Story GARNACHA · DO Campo de Borja
SPANISH STORY is our name. We want to tell the consumer a Spanish Story about grapes. Only ONE brand for 7 different grapes, and not forgetting 4 different DOs.
SELECTION OF WINES AND WINERIES
Bearing our consumer target in mind, we decided to go for young wines that are easy to drink, smooth in the mouth, but all of which have their own character. Wines for many occasions, for young and old. We have chosen our suppliers carefully: medium-large wineries with a long history, but also modern companies with the latest technology that are flexible, offer great service and are BRC/IFS certified. Our wineries are happy to work with us, since they believe in our concept and give us their full support.
The last member who joins us:
We were looking for an image that identifies each wine using more elements: the colour, background and an animal typical to the region where the grapes are grown.
An eagle (águila) for the fields of Rueda were our Spanish Story VERDEJO is from, an octopus (pulpo) for the Galician coast where the Spanish Story ALBARIÑO is grown, a deer (ciervo) and bull (bravo) for the region of Rioja were our Spanish Story GARNACHA and TEMPRANILLO grapes are grown, and finally a Mediterranean prawn for our Spanish Story CAVA BRUT. This way, the consumer can easily identify the products and make the association with the wines. All our potential new grapes will also have alsotheir own colour and animal. The animal on each label was carefully chosen. In the future we will have different gadgets incorporating this animal theme. Also important is that we use 100% TREE FREE paper for our bottle labels with the environment in mind. More info please click here
