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 »

  • Torres Pazo Das Bruxas Albarino 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Quite lovely. Golden in the Glass. Loads of Herbs, Minerals, and Stone Fruit. High level of Acidity, but with a surprising roundness, even oilyness, in the mouth. There seems to be a bit of oak which provides a long, smooth finish. Bits of Orange Rind as it opens up.One of the better Albarinos I have had. Read More

  • Rectoral Do Umia Viñabade Albariño 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Simple and bright fresh lemon and green apple aromas on the nose. This is emollient in the mouth with soft fleshy fruit notes of melon and papaya, a bit of creaminess coming through on the mi2015d palate amidst the green apple and lemon notes, and finishing a bit grassy and waxy with good length.

  • 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!
