Wines from Spain

The wine country of Spain has experienced a tremendous upswing since the 1990s. Numerous bodegas and vineyards were revived, newly created and better developed. The numerous altitudes in the country are blessed with plenty of sunshine and thus offer perfect conditions for the cultivation of wine. Especially the big plateaus Castilla y Léon and La Mancha offer a lot of space for vineyards. No wonder then that Spain today has the largest wine-growing area in the world. The most important grape variety in Spain is Tempranillo, which is also called Tinto Fino or Tinta del País depending on the region. The strong Tempranillo wines with their fruity character and mild tannins today have fans all over the world. The best known growing areas for Tempranillo are La Rioja and Ribera del Duero. The grapes develop very differently depending on the region. The cool nights at the Duero make the Tempranillo grapes smaller and the peels thicker. Therefore the must is more concentrated and the wine gets its typical spiciness. Perhaps this is the secret to the success of the enormous popularity of the Ribera del Duero – the wine region that has become a world famous celebrity in just 35 years.
