Cunca, something else than a cup of wine


In Galicia, Northwest Spain, by the Atlantic shore, we have a tradition that comes from very old. The wine served in a cup, or "cunca" as it is said there, this is the most traditional way to drink wine in Galicia. Until not many years ago, it was weird to find a tavern or a boozer that had not casks of wine  to fill the white porcelain jugs that finally ended up in the bar, or at the table so that at any time the patron could not miss the wine. White or red wine, Ribeiro, Barrantes, Albariño ... The kind of wines made in the old way in Galicia, usually wines of low graduation, young and fruity white and red wines pretty purple that left our languages in the same colour.
