Spanish Wines

Growing over 600 different grape varieties, they have as firm a grasp on tradition as they do on the new and adventurous and we're not sure that anyone understands the power of a good label better than these guys.

We're pretty sure that you already love Spanish wine as much as we do, so there isn't much more to say, other than to remember that although Rioja is King, there is so much more to Spain, so don't miss out on its neighbour Ribera del Duero or the lesser known regions of Rueda, Bierzo, Galcia, Valencia, the list goes on...

Wine is a matter of very personal taste. Over the last 50 years, as we're sure you can imagine, here at Oddbins we've heard almost everything. Those who say that South African wines all taste like burnt rubber, those who aren't keen on the bubbles in Champagne, those who find red Burgundy too thin for their tastes or those who don't like the brashness of Australian wine. In fact we think we've heard people tell us that they don't like the wines from almost every country that makes wine in our time. But one country seems almost immune to this kind of criticism...

...Spain. Spain is awesome. Fact!

We can't think of a more trusted country or one with more winemaking swagger than Spain. Helped in no small part by the worldwide reputation of Rioja, the current fashion for Albariño and Sherry and the great value offered by Cava, a sparkling wine made in the same traditional and quality way that Champagne is but at a fraction of the price, Spain is incredibly reliable, supremely confident and happy to do their own damn thing. And you can't help but respect that.
