Vino peleón, a wine that keeps on fighting.
I live in Spain and recently discovered the drinking experience that is vino peleón. “Peleón” translates to aggressive or rough.
Fighting wine. Cheeky and feisty — sounds like fun on a budget.
Vino peleón is a wine of poor flavour, odour and appearance. Usually young, it’s badly prepared or produced from crappy grapes.
Not all house wines or cheap wines are vino peleón. In Spain, you can buy a bottle of very decent wine for 3 euros.
