About Spain

Spain remains one of the world鈥檚 great wine-producing countries, sporting nearly 3 million acres of grapevines, more than any other country in the world.Among red varieties, Tempranillo is by far Spain鈥檚 most recognized grape; second in the hierarchy of Spanish wine is Cava, a sparkling wine made using the classic Champagne method. While the best wines in Spain hail from the northern third of the country, where the climate is not as hot and dry as in the south and where there is elevation from various mountain ranges and oceanic influences, grapes are grown throughout the Spanish wine regions, from Palomino in the southwest to Monastrell (another name for Mourv猫dre) in the southeast to Garnacha in Arag贸n and Priorat to almost everything under the hot Spanish sun in sprawling La Mancha in the dead center of Spain.As a highly regionally diverse wine nation, the Spanish wine region has well over 50 denominated regions including Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Navarra, Priorat, R铆as Baixas and others.
