Sleeping giant from the winemaking world, Spain woke up in the 90s to become a household name. With more than 1 million hectare of vineyard, Spain has the largest vine-planted area in the world and exudes a wonderful energy. To the traditional Jerez and Rioja wines, great wines from Cataluña, Galicia and Duero valley were added to revive and diversify the Spanish production. Spain is renowned first and foremost for its intense and tannic red wines made from Grenacha and Tempranillo. These grape varieties are well adapted to the continental climate covering most parts of the country with the exception of the North West. Nowadays, winemakers have reintroduced indigenous grape varieties with an emphasis on terroir. The range of white wines now comprises dry white wines produced from Albariño, Verdejo and Godello, which make for modern and electric wines with great finesse.
