Allow to bake for 15 minutes or until it has reached your desired crispiness Read More

Evil Eye is a juicy red blend from Spain that consists of Garnacha, Tempranillo and Carignan. Produced from ancient vines by Castillo de Monseran, this devilishly good Spanish red delivers a powerful dark punch that will repel any wicked force. Loads of blackberry and black cherry flavors abound here. This is a beautifully dry red blend that goes down easy, especially when paired with sausage-based pizza, burgers on the grill or delicious on its own. Ole!
Castillo de Monseran is located in Cariñena, Spain – the Spanish DO known as the birthplace of Garnacha. Castillo de Monseran is part of the Bodegas San Valero cooperative owned by more than 700 small independent growers with an average of 9 acres of vines, all known for their extremely low yields and exceptional quality. Castillo de Monseran’s old world charm and logo represent the traditional Spanish castles found throughout the region.
