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 »

  • We need a bigger event soon.  Let's plan something for the summer at ... Gallo or Jackson family of Spain, the way I see it.  Lots of regions and labels, low prices.  This is an 8 Euro bottle over there, if you buy a six pack.  It's really good for the money.  So was one of  the RdDs I was drinking, which was another of their labels, Vina Arna...

  • This is a dry Muscato from Spain called Botani.  They put the Muscato on their label for American buyers.  It's actually a variant of the standard Muscato grape that many Americans drink what you don't is that on the back label it says "Dry Muscat".  Thought I'd give it a try in a couple of weeks - it's a 2014.  Read More

    Hints of dark berry fruit and blood orange on the nose. A tad bitter on entry then the fruit, spice and vanilla enter only for the bitter tannins return on the finish. Needs a little time to jell. Hold 6-12 months - 83 pts - Paul Read More

  • 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!
