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 »

    Very impressed with this wine. Rioja is not always my favorite, it is surpassed by Tempernillo. However, this had a medium mouth feel, black fruit and was well balanced without many tannins. Read More

  • Anciano Reserva Valdepenas 7 Year 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This is a burgundy/tawny color, with coppery tones around the edge. The aroma is delightful.....initial smells of cocoa, leather, baking spice (vanilla, cinnamon is most noted), oak and fresh berry fruits. The flavors follow suit, and after a few mins of chilling, they really come out upon re-warmth.....cherry vanilla, muted cinnamon, oaked to... Read More

  • 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!
