The Best Spanish Wine Under $20 - The Reverse Wine Snob Picks!
It might surprise you to know that Spain has more vineyard land than any other country in the world. It also has the highest life expectancy in Europe -- coincidence? I think not! Spanish wine is one of our very favorite values because so much of the vineyard land in Spain is old, which means lots of really old grapevines, which equates to delicious wines. Why? The simple reason is because as vines age and the roots go deeper, they produce less fruit but that fruit is more concentrated with flavor.
Spain also follows strict laws as to how they can label their wine. (Check out Rioja for example.) This means that unlike a number of New World regions, wines here must meet stringent requirements to get a term like Reserva or Gran Reserva. In other words, when you see these terms on the label they actually mean something!
