Spain, country of wines

This article was published on 27/09/2016 at 20:00

Grapevine cultivation in Spain spread especially during the Roman occupation of Hispania between the 3rd century BC and the 1st century BC. During that period, new methods of cultivation and aging were introduced, fact that resulted in new flavours, aromas and textures never seen before.

From that moment on, Spain became a land of wines and nowadays it is one of the most well-known and prestigious countries in the world.

Is there anyone who does not know the Rioja, the Priorat or the Ribera del Duero? Spanish ‘Denominaciones de Origen’ or ‘Denominaciones de Origen Protegidas’ –Certificates of Origin– make the difference and give some sort of recognition to the Spanish wines which accomplish the requirements to the letter.
