Spain

Aside from the perennial classic bodegas such as López de Heredia and Vega Sicilia, a do-it-yourself attitude pervades Spain’s wine regions today. From the rediscovered hinterlands of Tenerife and Ribeira Sacra to Penedès and the Gredos Mountains west of Madrid, tenacious dreamers are avoiding prohibitive set-up costs and reviving unwanted parcels of indigenous old vines. This democratisation has resulted in some of our freshest vinous finds of recent years.
