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 »

  • Kirkland Signature Rioja Reserva 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Not your fathers Rioja. Brick red in the glass with lots of red fruit on the nose. Medium weight and fruit forward with good acidity finishing with light tannins to a really long fruity finish. Simple wine, reminds me of a Barbera. Read More

  • Ateca Atteca Garnacha Calatayud Old Vines 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Very pleasant on the palate with fruit and vanilla overtones with just a faint hint of sweetness. Finish has a slight citrus note than lingers pleasantly. I really like this wine. I paired it very successfully with grilled chicken and roasted vegetables and had another glass after dinner for my dessert. Read More

  • Muga Reserva Rioja Unfilterd 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Something of a chemical or alcoholic nose. Quite light on the fruit on entry. Medium-bodied. Light on tannin. Noticeable acid. Nothing really wrong with this wine, but nothing really grabs me. As the wine warms a bitI just pulled it from my cellarcomponents seem to be more integrated. Now, the fruit seems more subtle, not light. Tannin a... Read More

  • 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!
