SPAIN

Although Spain is considered Western Europe's second-oldest wine producing country, their wines are unquestionably modern. From fruit forward Tempranillo, to crisp and refreshing Verdejo, Spanish wines can range from styles made to drink every day, to those with great complexity and aging potential. Spain has the largest number of acres under vine; however, due to their low-producing vines, infertile soil and limited yields, they rank third among growing regions (behind Italy and France).

Currently, Spain is one of the best values on the market for still wine. For many years the wines appeared mired in mediocrity, but in the past couple of decades Spanish winemakers have leapt to a new level of quality. The modernization of the winemaking facility matched with the respect of wine as a part of Spanish culture, has provided the nation with a strong position in the market.

The most influential wine making regions in Spain include Rioja, Priorat, Ribera del Duero, Navarra, Rías Baixas and Penedès. With more than 600 native varietals, about twenty account for the majority of Spain's wine production (predominantly Garnacha, Albariño, Tempranillo, Macabeo, Xarello, Monastrell and Airen.) Whites hold the majority in vineyard plantings, but the red Tempranillo grape is the country's most-prized.
