For decades Spain's most famous wine regions have been Rioja, and the classic fortified wine region, Sherry. However Spain has more recently experienced an awakening and is carving a reputation for making some seriously good wines in other regions too.
Rioja is produced in north-central Spain and has historically been the country's major red wine region. Rioja is produced using predominantly Tempranillo, A red grape variety synonymous with Spanish wine. However they also use Garnacha (Grenache), Graciano (Carignan), and Mazuelo, and red Rioja wine is typically a blend of two or more of these varieties.
Other regions of note are Ribera del Duero, also a big producer of Tempranillo, Priorato, Penedés in Catalonia - which is most known for Cava, Navarra, Toro and Rueda.
