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 »

  • Don't - though it was fun reading the posts of those that hadn't experienced Spainish wine at this price point and style I'd have a more complete over view of the grape - USA, France,Spain and Australia, et al to show the stylistic differences and tastes of the grape grown in different areas.

  • It seemed well received by those not familiar the the Spain side of the grape's expression. I, personally, would like to have it done a different method- a true celebration of the grape from different areas. It's not hard and I think that it would have a better nod towards the grape. Itself.How did you feel about the VT. Read More

    Had this with Lunch the other day at Perry's Steakhouse in Dallas. Very soft, fragrant with spice, earth, mineral, dark ripe fruit and cocoa and tobacco. Low Tannins & Acidity, but good, but simple complexity. Not bad pricing by the glass. 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!
