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 »

  • Casado Morales Gran Reserva 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Very nice wine and one very good QPR. Lite hit of cherry on introduction. Then its all wine, all the time. Tannin and acid are apparent, but relatively sedate. I doubt there will be much left of this bottle in a few hours. Read More

  • No I don't - I guessed France since there are so many renovations going on there and Spain.  I was thinking it was a fairly recent up grade to a place you had memories of visiting.  Other than that.... If those thoughts are remotely correct, I envy you the visit - it's impressive to say the least.115 Read More

  • Evodia Garnacha 2014

    Snoothrank:

    let it breathe - after decanting it gives barberry, pomelo, soft vanilla tone and fragrance of a broken tree twig that becomes brighter after a while. Mid-Soft beginning and more bright, aggressive ending. Not perfect but definitely very interesting to explore wine. Read More

  • 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!
