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.We are now a few years on our way and selling our wines in several countries in Europe and Asia. Full of new ideas for wine marketing we will see what the future will bring in this exciting wine world. New wines, grapes and brands will follow soon! Cheers, Paul
Seven grapes, 5 D.O.s, ONE brand
Spanish Wine can be confusing. Different regions are mentioned, many brands are out there, but the grape variety is not very clear. So we started thinking and decided to focus on the Spanish grape variety. To let you know what kind of Spanish grape you are drinking. To tell you a story about Spanish grapes while you enjoy them. Our idea.
The Spanish (grape) Story.First we like that you get to know 7 of Spain’s most famous grapes: Tempranillo and Garnacha reds, Verdejo and Albariño whites and Macabeo, Xarel·lo and Parellada for Cava Brut. Different grapes, ready to enjoy, and soon to be followed by other marvelous Spanish grapes. We know that these Spanish grapes are great and among the best in the world. As you can see, each grape was given its own Spanish animal printed on a very colorful label. Easy to recognize and fun to see. We hope you like our idea, our Spanish (grape) Story! Send your feedback to our website or our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter!
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

Our Spanish TEMPRANILLO Story and Spanish GARNACHA Story were developed together with Bodegas Patrocinio. Located in the "Rioja Alta", the perfect location and with optimal qualities for the growing of the grapevine.
Our Spanish ALBARIÑO Story is made by Bodegas Gallegas. Their winery Rectoral do Umia, belonging to the D.O. Rías Baixas, is located in the Salnés Valley where the Albariño grape traditionally develops its maximum quality and strength.
Our Spanish CAVA BRUT Story is made by Bodegas Covides, at this moment one of the larger Cava producers in Cataluña. Founded in the year 1963 but only in 1980, after founding the new winery in Sant Sadurní d´Anoia, they started to export . Their most grown grapes are Macabeo, Parellada and Xarel-lo.
