Spanish Wine

Spain is one of the word’s largest wine-producing regions. It comprises most of the Iberian Peninsula with a divergence of cultures, climates and, por supuesto, types of wine. There are many notable styles from all over the country, ranging from traditional viticulture to modern and methodical, to rustic, value driven and food friendly young table wines to well aged prized vintages. Not to mention some venerable expressions of methode champenoise and the range of dessert, sherries and fortified wines from salty, dry Manzanillas to candylike Pedro Ximinez soleras. 

Spain currently has 70 government approved wine regions such as Catalunya, Rias Baixas, Ribera del Duero, Priorat, Rueda, Jumilla, Bierzo, Cava and Jerez. Popular indigenous red varietals include Tempranillo (which has many local derivations), Cariñena, Garnacha, Monastrell and Mencia. Popular indigenous whites include Albariño, Verdejo, Macabeo, Xarel-lo and Paralleda (the latter three comprising the ingredients Read more »

  • Castillo de Monseran Old Vines Garnacha 2010

    Snoothrank:

    The nose was ripe, yet characterful, showing dark fruit, ripe strawberry, mint, and a hint of oak. On the palate, it was rich and deeply rooted in brambly, earthy fruit with blackberry, currant, hints of stem and minerals. The texture was full yet grainy with tannin that tugged at your already black-fruit saturated palate. A solid vein of acidit... Read More

  • Vinos Sin-Ley Tempranillo Blend Vinos de Madrid Zestos 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Fairly sweet and smoky, with an unexpected tannin finish. Flavors of grape juice, lemon, plum, and prune. Good. Read More

    Wine review by Slipstream


  • Casar de Burbia Mencia 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Flavorful, tart, and fruit-forward, with some notable tannins as well. I could taste cranberry and a little sea salt. Nothing is out of place here. It would stand up to a hearty meal, but it is good on its own too. Read More

  • Juve Y Camps Brut Natural Cava Reserva de la Familia 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Pretty decent cava with plentiful, fairly tight bubbles. There's a small hit of ginger ale on the nose but the palate is yeasty with a subtle dried fig note. The mouthfeel is nice and dry with rounded acidity and a medium finish. Read More

  • Torres Viña Esmeralda 2013

    Snoothrank:

    This wine is about 5 euros in Spain - an unbelievable bargain by North American standards. The nose is full of wild rose and other sweet garden flowers filled in by apricot and peach. The entry is quite smooth and luscious with more soft fruit such as peach and maybe a bit of lychee nut. Would pair nicely with seafood - especially cuttlefish ... Read More

  • Castellroig Brut Nature Reserva Cava 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This nutty and expressive Cava is unbelievable value - being about 12 dollars US at the winery. There is almond, walnut and smoke on the nose with plenty of citrus on the palate. Mousse is continuous for at least 7-8 minutes - excellent for Cava. Try the Family Reserve for even more Champagne-like elegance. 89 points. Read More

  • L'Agnet 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This very typical Priorat has gobs of coffee, deep red fruit and plenty of sediment - the latter being a product of sitting in the supermarkets of Barcelona a bit longer than anticipated by the producer. Good Priorat intensity on the nose and palate and consequently an excellent value. 88 points. Read More

  • Ramon Roqueta Tempranillo Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva 2008

    Snoothrank:

    This is another Catalonian wine of middling rank (about 6 Euros) which I purchased from the Caprabo S. A. Supermarket in Barcelona. The scent is of Bordeaux A. C. with the Tempranillo element somewhat attenuated. On the palate there is a bit of anise, fresh rolled cigar and cassis with tannin almost non existent. A good wine for ordinary fare an...

  • I am trying to track down where I can buy Vina Corosa Vino Tinto wine. Probably one of the best wines I have tasted while in Mexico. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

  • I discovered the Bodegas Lozano wines during a wine tasting in Belgium and love the Gran Oristan Reserva. I am an American living in Seville area for the next two years and look forward to discovering even more great Spanish wines.

  • Portugal is not Spain!!! Portugal is a country since 1143! The first branded site vineyard in the entire world was Douro region, in Portugal. Update your site, please! Your data are wrong!

  • Woops, I incorrectly stated below that the region was Lleida. Lleida is simply one of the larger towns close to Tomas Cusine winery. The wine region is actually Costers del Segre. Either way it's a very nice spot and I would recommend it to anyone!
