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 »

  • Rot Dehesa Gago Tinta de Toro Telmo Rodriguez 2007


    This was really an exceptionally unique and standout wine. It has it's own character - very similar to the Yalumba Barossa I often drink. Read More

  • Don Sebastian Blanco Rioja Doca 2008


    Wow, what a surprise! Very vibrant and fruity, yet not sweet. I would love to know what the residual sugar content is on this one! Great bouquet. Lots of strong fruit characteristics coming through. A great summer wine that can stand alone or be served with appetizers, a meal or a cheese course. And don't limit this one to summer only. Thi...

  • Viña Cubillo Crianza Rioja 2006


    Best tempranillo I've had for $7.Nose is simple but pleasant with berry, vanilla and mineral. Full and round in the mouth, well structured, moderate acid and decent finish. Really simple, successful "International style" red wine with a tempranillo twist. Absolutely not interesting, elegant or sophisticated - but one of my first picks under $10. Read More

  • Paso a Paso Tempranillo la Mancha 2007


    Dark, dark fruit, maybe a bit of molasses, on the nose, smoky right up front on the tongue with a lingering oaky finish. I really liked this one, one of the best Tempranillo's that I've enjoyed! Read More
