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 »

  • Well, I have to say that in NYC you have more access to more wine than just ... enough to find it even from Spain! The grape was almost extinct until a few growers took a chance on it and the best ones can be pretty good, but as EMark said, I don't think most growers have cracked the code yet.Anyhow, speaking of not quite cracking the code, la...

  • Cosme Palacio Reserva Rioja 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A Lot 18 Selection; I am sure Dionysus, Bacchus, and even Jim Bacchus would be pleased. This is a beauty. Opens with an earthy roasted ripe grape and plum and a bit of cedar chest. Dry, extremely smooth, and a mouthful. Long, long finish of earth, mocha, cherry preserves and a little bit of pepper and red chile spice and oak. Just a pleasure to... Read More

  • Manny, it's only been 3 days since your post about Spain and visiting Heredia. So what happens to me today? I hop into one of my fav wine stores and they have a bottle of Heredia on the tasting. So I tasted and bought a bottle of 2002 López de Heredia Rioja Reserva Viña Tondonia. As I'm enjoying the tasting, the wine store proprietor brings out ... Read More

  • Just got back from Spain where we drank some Tondonia 1994 White Reserva (among a wide range of others).  Amazingly fresh but not fruity.  The taste that came trough to me most was "nutty".  We visited Lopez de Heredia (also among others) and found that they age their whites the same way as reds, at least 6 years in barrels and at least two year...

  • Mas Doix Salanques Priorat 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A very nice priorat. Ripe black cherry and smooth fine grained tannins give this grenache based Spanish red nicely balanced flavor and a really nice mouthfeel. Nicely tamed, not your overpowering Priorat. Read More

    Wine review by vin0vin0


  • A knowledgeable wine merchant told me: "if you want to know Garancha, this is it". I found it in Bielsa Campo de Borja Garancha, 2008. Great extract, aromas and mouth feel with pepper always following, this young wine was ripe fruit with balance. A great value out of the Zaragoza province near Aragon.

  • My husband and I recently returned from Spain. We especially loved the table wines, but learned when inquiring about shipping a case home that the shipping costs would be prohibitive. Are any of these young, inexpensive wines available in the US?
