Spanish Wine

 

 

Thanks to an established winemaking history and rich natural resources, Spain is the country with the largest area of vineyards, more than one million hectares, and the first largest wine producer in the world (data 2013). The first vineyards were cultivated on the southwest coast of Andalusia by the Phoenicians, which may also have been the entry point for the first vines that reached the peninsula 3,000 years ago.

 

Given its geographical features, climatic variations and the myriad of soil types, Spain is ideally situated for the production of very different grape varieties. We are privileged to have a broad range of high quality native grape varieties, such as Tempranillo, Bobal, Monastrell, Garnacha, Mencía, Albariño, Verdejo...

 

In addition to a diverse range of still wines, Spain is also fortunate to produce traditional yet delicious products such as Sherry (our world-beating fortified wine, made with Palomino Fino, Moscatel and Pedro Ximénez varieties) and Cava (our sparkling wine made in the “traditional method” with Xarel.lo, Parellada and Macabeo local varieties and some foreign grapes).

 

Spain has a vast number of different quality winemaking regions, from Denominations of Origin  to Single Estate Wines. While some (such as Rioja, Rías Baixas, Sherry, and Ribera del Duero) are well known, there are many others producing a vast range of wines that are yet to be discovered by many outside Spain.

 

A quick tour will reveal fresh, fruity whites in the northwest; full bodied reds in the southeast; and an interior with great blends, as well as the best wines in the world produced from the Tempranillo grape. The south produces our magical Sherry wines, with exciting sweet wines and elegant Cava being produced in a various areas across Spain (mostly in Catalonia, but also in Valencia, Extremadura and La Rioja).

 

In recent years, the world has witnessed the rise of a new generation of Spanish master winemakers, who have learnt to blend tradition and quality with innovation, giving rise to unique wines of exceptional quality that enjoy unprecedented success worldwide. There is a Spanish wine for every moment, a different wine for every food.
