Nov 25,/2022


Last night Spain ended with a 7-0 score against Costa Rica.

Before the match, some people analyzed the team’s lack of experience in the tournament, may need time to sharpen, and some people are not optimistic about this young team. But thanks to Spain’s world-leading soccer youth training, the players’ personal Europa League experience and Spain’s own soccer philosophy passed down from generation to generation, the fresh blood is almost perfectly integrated into the Spanish soccer team, and Ferran Torres, Pedri, Garcia and other youngsters have taken over the cape of “Matador” to lead a number of first-time World Cup participants. The relay between the old and the new makes this Spanish team have unlimited possibilities. When it comes to the topic of the old and the new, we have to talk about the famous Spanish wine – Sherry.

The Solera System I Spanish Wisdom Products

The perfect operation of the old and the new in Spain is not only reflected in the soccer competition, but also in the second half of the 18th century, when the Solera System, a system of alternating old and new sherry, was invented by Spanish wineries. By gradually blending the original wine from different vintages, the new wine was transformed into an aged wine as it moved in and out year after year. The longer the Solera System is in place, the more distinct and complex the style, and the richer the taste.

The Solera System was originally invented to maintain the stability and consistency of the Sherry style. Each year, new wines are put into the Solera System, and they quickly integrate with the older wines, resulting in a smooth and delicate flavor profile. The succession of the old and the new, one at a time, also minimizes the variability that the vintage brings to the spirit.
