Tuna & Egg Pie
Tinned tuna is happy with aromatic white wines and egg will be comfortable too so, which to choose?
As I’ve said many times before Spain can no longer be considered a red wine country with not much more than lip-service being paid to white wine production, albeit with some notable exceptions like Albariño wines from Galicia. There are many splendid white wines now being made in several different areas of Spain.
DO Rueda with their indigenous Verdejo and their imported foreign grape variety, Sauvignon Blanc could provide a super match. Or a Chardonnay from DO Somontano would do the trick. There are some cracking white wines from the Pais Basco made from unpronounceable varieties in DO Chacoli De Vizcaya-Bizkaiko Txakolina!  
However perhaps Galicia remains a centre of excellence for whites and you may want to choose an Albariño (that’s the grape variety) from DO Rias Baixas which would be super. Or a Godello (grape variety again) from DO Valdeorras.
Nevertheless I’m going to suggest a white wine, from the Galicia area, but this time from DO Ribiero made from perhaps a blend of Treixadura, Godello and Albariño – there’s loads of fruit-laden aromas in such a wine with fresh acidity too – a good match I think!
