The Wines of Spain

Spain’s vineyards are characterised by their often extreme climatic conditions. Vines may be found growing in desert or volcanic regions or in landscapes blanketed by snow. They can grow successfully in places with very low annual rainfall, like the central and south-eastern dry regions, or in extremely damp areas like those of north-western Spain, influenced by Atlantic weather. In fact, in some areas the strength of the wine making tradition is encouraged by the grapevine being the only plant capable of surviving and flourishing in extreme temperatures.

Spain has a very high proportion of old vines, giving lower yields. European Union money has enabled the wine industry to modernise and it is now the country that many wine critics consider to make the broadest range of wines of real interest. >>Read More
