The Wines of Valdepenas Pair Perfectly With Canada's May Long Weekend

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 18, 2012) - Canadians love their long weekends. The May long weekend is the first long weekend of summer and launches a season of entertaining in the backyard or cottage. The Spanish wines of P.D.O. Valdepeñas, (Protected Designation of Origin) pair perfectly with backyard BBQs, cottage parties, and summer entertaining.

Valdepeñas offer original, approachable wines with outstanding value, which complement grilled steaks, barbequed chicken or fresh summer salads.

Valdepeñas Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) is the organization that guarantees the uncompromising quality through strict monitoring of every step of wine production, maintaining the levels of popularity that have long been enjoyed by Valdepeñas wines throughout their long and illustrious history.

With a new logo and new global marketing program, the P.D.O. Valdepeñas aims to send out the message that PDO Valdepeñas wines are different from the rest, with their own original style.

Consumers can now identify Valdepeñas wines from the label on the back of all the bottles protected by the Designation of Origin. The generic back label for the D.O. Valdepeñas was redesigned in 2011 to include the new logo.

Valdepeñas wines are 100 per cent Spanish with a unique origin and one of the second most widely-consumed P.D.O. in Spain, meaning that it is only a "Valdepeñas" if the grapes are grown and the wine is made and bottled in this unique region at the heart of Spain. Valdepeñas wines also offer outstanding value and there's a Valdepeñas wine for every occasion. For more information, visit
