Spain

Spain is an ancient wine-producing country and in the third place of production among the world. After years on the sidelines of the world of fine wine, it is now a major player. Investment and ambition in vineyard and winery are resulting in more and more high quality wines. One special thing in Spain is they focus on oak ageing. The terms on label reflect the minimum ageing in barrel: Crianza, Reserva, and Gran Reserva. Theoretically, Reservas and Gran Reservas are better wines because they have been chosen for extended aging. However, each region has different ageing requirement and some Bodegas choose not to follow the rules.

Spain also has its own handsome array of indigenous grape varieties. Tempranillo produces some of the country’s most admired red wines and is planted widely under several aliases. Spain’s most planted grape variety was exported to France where it is known as Grenache. The most famous region in Spain is Rioja, which is one of the only two DOC while another one is Priorat. Meanwhile, other regions are building international status like Riberal del Duero because of the effort of the most famous Spanish Bodega Vega Sicilia.
