Spanish Wines, They Won’t Beak The Bank And They Taste Amazing Too

If you are unfamiliar with wine, or have the idea that only wines from California or France are good, while you aren’t wrong per say, you aren’t exactly completely right as well. Wines from Spain have taken a giant leap in popularity over the past couple years. With most everyone feeling the strains from the economy, high dollar wines weren’t as popular as they used to be, however, people didn’t want to sacrifice on taste. This is where Spain stepped in- able to provide high quality wine, for lower prices, Spanish wine took off in popularity. If you aren’t familiar with Spanish wines, we are here to point you in the right direction, as well as save you a couple bucks.

One thing that makes Spanish wines so good is the age of their vines. They are lucky to have older vines, which are producing more complex and richer tasting grapes, equaling in fantastic wines. While Spain has had some draughts over the past year, wine exporters aren’t worried the price will effect it too much, making it still extremely affordable. One of the reasons Spanish wine has flown under the radar is because people aren’t familiar with the regions of wine growing in Spain as they are with places such as the United States, or France. For example, people are generally familiar with Napa valley, or the Bordeaux region of France. Spain however, features regions such as Ribera del Duero, Rías Baixas, and Yecla to name a few. These regions don’t have the fame as their counterparts in the U.S. and France, allowing their price points to be lower.

This is good for the buyer, because as the buyer, you are saving money, without sacrificing on quality. Becoming familiar with Spanish wines is also a plus because it will impress your wine enthusiast friends. Knowing good, offbeat regions is a great way to discover new brands as well. If you love wine from a certain region, it is a great starting point for finding new labels. Also, research online will definitely help point you in the right direction. However, tasting is the best way to really find what you like.

If you haven’t tried wine from Spain, now is the time to start. Breaking away from the standard of French or American wines is also a great place to develop your knowledge about wine. Most importantly, it is a great way to save money- which, who doesn’t love to save some money and not compromise the quality of things you love?
