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 »

    Want a cheaply priced wine that works at any outdoor gathering - especially with white meats or seafood? This may be your choice. A wine with peach notes on the nose and some allspice that also penetrates on entry, this Castilian number is good value. Not elegant or particularly subtle, but fairly soft and flavourful enough for everyday quaffi... Read More

The touch of oak and vanilla has beco... Read More

  • 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!
