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.
