Original Sparkling Red Wine Cocktail of Spain
Makes U.S. Debut at Arizona’s Run with the Bulls
A drink familiar to most who have lived in or visited Spain has finally made its way to the United States and will make its debut at another iconic Spain event – Arizona’s own Running With the Bulls in Cave Creek, Ariz., on October 19 & 20.
Tintano is a sparkling red wine cocktail based on Spain’s famous wine beverage, Tinto de Verano. In Southern Spain, this popular beverage is composed of red wine with soda water typically served over ice with a squeeze of lemon or lime. The Tintano formula is made from a high quality 100 percent Spanish Tempranillo wine fused with light carbonation. It is 4.5% ABV, very low sugar and carbohydrates and has only 85 calories per 8.5 ounce serving. It comes in bottles of 200ml, 500 ml, 750ml 1 liter, and 1.5 liters.
Tintano is a major sponsor of the Running of the Bulls USA in Cave Creek, Ariz., on Saturday, October 20. According to Tintano Western Sales Director Marco Sanders – this Spanish-inspired event is the ideal venue to introduce Tintano to the U.S. market.
“Anyone who has been to Spain or the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona will be familiar with Tintano. It is so much a part of the culture, lifestyle and festivities of the Spanish people.” He says. “We are proud to be the first (and only) to introduce this refreshingly delicious Spanish beverage to the U.S. consumer, and proud to sponsor the Running of the Bulls USA. We’re excited to share this unique and beautiful drink in such an appropriately festive setting.”
Tintano will have three tents at the Running of the Bulls, including a Tintano lounge, where participants and spectators can sample and enjoy the cocktail. It is also hosting two events for participants the night before the run.
“The night before the runs in Pamplona are a big party. There is no sleep, only excitement and celebration. We will create some of that excitement and atmosphere in Cave Creek,” says Sanders.
