Alambrado

Spanish name (wire fence) for the netting used in Spain to wrap wine bottles, especially Rioja, but also e.g. Cariñena (picture). The mostly gold-coloured net was introduced during the time of the great Rioja boom. It was intended to make it more difficult for wine counterfeiters to exchange the contents of the bottle for cheap wine and thus became a quality feature. Today this is only common for exports to Scandinavia, where this form is still very popular. See also under Agraffe and bottles.
