Spain

Spain, on Europe’s Iberian Peninsula, is really 17 autonomous regions, each with its own geography and culture. While Spain is probably best known for its wines from Rioja and Ribera del Duero, there are many other DOs throughout the country with distinctive personalities from Green Spain which encompasses rainy Galicia, The Basque Country, and Asturias with their low alcohol high acid wines, the slate strewn vineyards outside of Madrid and Barcelona that give you warm Mediterranean fruit packed with minerality, the Canary Islands vineyards planted in volcanic ash, holding some of the highest altitude vineyards in Europe as well as all ungrafted and ancient varietals, to the inimitable Sherries from the hot southern climes of Andalucia that lay on top of thousands of miles of limestone soils, this is a dynamic country with an ancient wine-making history and diverse terroirs to rival some of the best.
