Many Spain wine regions are offering dynamic wines that are a delight to explore. The styles range from spicy, berry-rich powerful reds to light, fresh whites and of course the sparkle of cava. This wide range in offerings includes some of the world’s best value priced wines.
In the past, Spain’s world-class wines came mainly from the Rioja region, a region many wine drinkers find familiar. But today, quality Spanish wines are being produced in Ribera del Duero and Catalonia. In addition, many Rioja producers are shaking things up and proving that Spain is one of the most progressive Old World wine-producing countries in the world.
In the past couple of weeks I have been on an exploration of my own, tasting my way through an array of budget-friendly Spanish wines.
