A Timeless Tradition
The land of Alhambra and Don Quixote, flamenco and tapas, Spain bleeds culture and roots. Spanish artisans have influenced architecture, cuisine, art, dance, literature, and language throughout the world. And the art of winemaking has been with them at every step.
Spanish winemakers have shaped and advanced the art of viticulture for more than 3,000 years. The country’s Mediterranean climate and rich soil have allowed its vintners to trace their roots to the reigns of the ancient Greeks and Romans.
Today, Spain stands as one of the world’s single largest producers of wine, competing only with France and Italy. From Spanish indigenous white grapes such as Albariño, Verdejo and Palomino, to red grapes such as Tempranillo, Garnacha and Monastrell, Spain delivers a richness and diversity of world-class wines unlike any other country on earth. In the second half of the eighteenth century, friar Junípero Serra planted Spanish grape varieties in California to produce the first American wines. Today, they generate wines in Spain poised to leave an impression and bring life to the richness of Spain’s gastronomy. Tapas, paellas, seafood, and cured meats find perfect pairs with the country’s impressive selection of wines.
