Favorite thing: when in a restaurant you have the aperativo, that can be a sherry. Whine is usually served at the main course. Spain is famous for its wines. Whines of quality have the classifiacion DO (denominacion origine) Vino de la Tiera is under the norm and vieno de mesa is the lowest quality. Cavas has two sorts, brut (dry) and semi-seco (half sweet). at the whine etiquet you find the age of the wine , cosecha means the wine is young and therefore not expensive. The wines are blanco (white) and seco (dry) or dulce (sweet), rosado (rose) and a tinto is a red whine
