Spanish Wine Guide (Ebook & App)
Wine guides for the ultra curious, Approach Guides takes an in depth look at a wine region’s grapes, appellations, and vintages to help you discover wines that meet your preferences. The purpose of this guide is to profile the unique aspects of Spain’s appellations and grape varieties; this guide does not profile specific producers or rate individual wines.
Explore and experience the breadth and depth of Spain’s wines with our Spanish Wine Guide. Equally valuable as a travel guide and a wine shop companion, you will find yourself returning again and again to this book to learn about Spain’s grapes, regions, appellations, and vintages.
For each region, we lay out the indigenous red and white grape varieties, the flavor profiles each variety typically exhibits, the denominations in which these grapes reach their highest expression, and vintage ratings. Since value is a focus, we highlight the regions where you are most likely to find quality wine at good prices. Rather than seek to tell you what specific bottle of wine to order, we give guidance as to how to approach ordering the most appropriate wine for the region. When appropriate, we have let our opinions be known.
* We mark each of our favorite regions, grape varieties and appellations with an asterisk — look to these regions for quality, consistency, and good values.
This guide has been written with the traveler in mind and is meant to be read region by region (so that when in a specific place like Barcelona or the Rioja region, you can quickly and easily identify wines to try).
We hope you enjoy what we believe is a totally unique guide to the wines of Spain. Salud!
