About Spain as a wine country

Spain is the world’s third largest wine producer, after France and Italy.

The most cultivated red grapes are Tempranillo (21.5%), followed by Bobal (7.0%), Garnacha tinta (6.7%) and Monastrell (5.3%).

The most famous district is Rioja in northern Spain, which makes wines with a typically strong vanilla-based oak note. In second place is the nearby Ribera del Duero in northwestern Spain, which also makes powerful red wines from Tempranillo. The district of Toro is a little further down the Duero River and also makes powerful Tempranillo wines.

In Catalonia in eastern Spain, the Penedès region is famous for its sparkling Cava. The district of Priorat a few miles further south is also a quality district. In Priorat they usually make powerful red wines based on blends of Garnacha tinta, Cariñena and Cabernet Sauvignon.

In Jerez in the southwest of Spain they produce the strong wine Sherry.
