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.

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.

  • Bodegas Casa Castillo El Molar 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Brilliant ruby red. Suave, smoke infected cherry and dark berry aromas are complemented by touches of violet and cracked pepper. The palate shows very good focus, with a spicy nuance lifting the gently sweet, energetic black raspberry, cherry cola and lavender pastille flavors. Supple, well knit tannins give firmness to the clinging, floral fini... Read More
