Rioja DOCa

Top grapes: Tempranillo, Garnacha, Viura

This region is known for its red wines, though it produces amazing full-bodied white wines that can really stand alone. Many oak-aged reds from this region showcase the Tempraillo grape, which is native to Spain.


Ribera del Duero DO

Top grapes: Tinto Fino (Tempranillo), Garnacha

Here the locals refer to the Tempranillo grape as Tinto Fino, literally meaning fine red wine. And for good reason! These wines are almost all red and rival those of their eastern neighbor, Rioja.


Priorat DOCa

Top grapes: Cariñena (Carignan), Garnacha, internation varietals – Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon

When your glass is full with a wine from Priorat, you will first notice the intense fruit flavors of these full-bodied reds, some of the most sought after in the entire country.


Cava DO

Top grapes: Macabeo, Parellada, Xare-lo, Chardonnay

Cava is Spain’s most important sparkling wine region. As the bubbles linger, so does the refreshing, crisp taste from the fruity and aromatic sparkling wines from the area.


Rias Baixas DO

Top grape: Albariño

Whites are the variety produced by the Albariño grape, with its aromatic nose, which smells of stone fruit balanced with a crisp, acid finish. Often aged in oak, this versatile grape has become very special and vibrant with newly adopted aging techniques.


Toro DO

Top grape: Tinto de Toro (Tempranillo)

In Spanish, the word toro means bull, and this powerful animal is the perfect representation for the robust wines that come from this region.


Rueda DO

Top grapes: Verdejo, Sauvignon Blanc, Viura

Rueda may be the top region to visit if you are looking for a white wine from Spain.  From crisp whites to more textured wines, from floral or fruity to mineral notes, you will find it all here.


Navarra DO

Top grapes: Garnacha, Moscatel de Grano Menudo

Navarra is a land of great wine variety. Though famous for Rose, you can also enjoy a fruity red, a buttery Chardonnay or a sweet Muscatel.


Jerez – Sherry

Top grapes: Palomino, Moscatel, Pedro Ximenez (PX)

Sherry can be bone dry to very sweet. Sit and enjoy a dry Manzanilla with your fried fish or sip on a Moscatel with notes of dried fruit and almonds.
