Spain has been having a long love affair with wine.

It began cultivating vines in about 4,000 BCE. From about 1100 to 200 BCE, the Phoenicians, followed by the Carthaginians contributed their wine cultures to Spain. And after 200 BCE, Spain became a principal wine supplier to the Roman Empire.

Today, Spain has more territory dedicated to vineyards than either France or Italy. Over the past 40 years, advancements in Spain’s wine industry have made it the world’s third largest wine producer. Now Spain is converting an industry built for quantity into a diverse landscape of high quality producers covering more than 70 classified appellations.

Take a tour of Spain’s diverse and exotic wine regions with us. Discover the countless captivating qualities of Spainish wine. Come along with us on our Vuelta a España – a race through Spain!

From its cheerful and delicious pueblo wines to the ageworthy masterpieces of its grandest estates, from the aromatic Albariños of Rías Baixas in Galicia to the classic Riojas of the Ebro River Valley, from the joyful Cavas of the Penedes in the northeast to the complex Sherries of Jerez in the southwest, we’ll taste, explore and experience all of the rich beauty of Spain’s long love affair with wine.
