SPAR reveals first Organic Wine in stores nationwide

Organic wines are on the rise with UK sales increasing 47% in 2019*, and SPAR are on the case with two brand new Organic wines being released under a new brand name, Orbis. The name originates from the latin word for ‘World’ and here SPAR are showing the quality of what our planet can organically produce and grow.

The new Orbis range is produced in Europe’s leading region for organic vineyards, Castilla La Mancha, where there are more than 50,000 hectares under cultivation. Organic production is not simply concerned with the substitution of chemicles like pesticides and fertilizers, but encompasses a change in production systems with varieties adapted to local conditions, the improvement of soil fertility and maintaining environmental stability. The vineyard uses absolutely zero GMO materials, making this wine organic and ecological.

Both bottles are exclusive to SPAR with Philippa Carr Master of Wine at SPAR UK describing the range: “The Orbis Organic Tempranillo Shiraz blend is a deep cherry-red in colour with aromas of strawberries and fruits of the forest, making it smooth and well-balanced. Enjoy on its own or with hearty food like meats, cheese or mushroom dishes. The white wine is a Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc blend and is pale lemon in colour with aromas of ripe peaches and tropical fruit flavours, making it a crisp and well-balanced white wine. Great match with fresher, lighter cuisine especially vegetables and fish, green salads and seafoods. Serve chilled.”
