Wine regions in Spain: diversity of a wine nation
The region with the second-largest cultivated area in Spain is Andalusia. Although the region's high summer temperatures make conditions unfavourable for vines, these benefit from Andalusia's proximity to the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. The sandy and limestone soils store the wetness of the winter months well, enabling exclusive wines to be cultivated. This winegrowing region's flagship is sherry, which has enjoyed great popularity since the 16th century.Even those of Spain's winegrowing regions that have relatively limited areas under vines produce popular quality wines. Navarre, for example, which lies close to the French border, is one of Spain's most versatile wine regions – with climatic conditions that make the most diverse types of wine possible. The Garnacha grape variety, one of the most common in Spain, is traditionally cultivated to produce a beautiful rosé wine. Want to know more about Spain's individual winegrowing regions?
