SPAIN

With nearly 1.16 million hectares under vine, Spain boasts the largest surface area of vine cultivation in the world that dates back to Roman times. There are 67 appellations of Spanish wine, many of which perhaps live in the shadow of the better known appellations of Rioja, Cava, Sherry and the Ribera del Duero.

The country has a varied climate from the cooler, greener north to the parched Mediterranean south, but the growers cope with the heat by planting vineyards with an average altitude of 2,000 feet. The hot climate produces ripe, rich and powerful wines that can compete well with New World reds, but with additional appeal from a host of excellent indigenous grape varieties.

Spanish Wine

Wines From Spain

Characterised by a mix of sweet, sour and rich flavours, Rioja wines, such as Viña Arana Reserva 2009, tend to be the first thing that comes to mind when people think of Spanish red wine. Armit Wines supplies a huge range of reds and whites from across one of the world’s most unique and varied wine-producing regions. Explore our full and diverse Spanish wine list today.

Spanish Wine Regions

From the Vega Sicilia vineyard in Spain’s northern Ribero del Duero region, to the southern Jumilla region’s 2012 Portazgo Monastrell/Syrah, our selection of Spanish wines showcase the best grapes each of Spain’s most characterful vineyards has to offer.

Enjoy the luxury of the rich, structured flavours of Carinena’s Grandes Vinos Y Vinedos 2014 Monasterio de las Viñas Garnacha Rosado, or enjoy the clear, refreshing citrus notes of a 2013 Las Cuadras Blanco from Bodegas Costers del Sio, on the Coster del Segre. And for a flavour you simply can’t find anywhere else - there’s always a deep, ardent Rioja red wine like the 2007 Viña Ardanza.

Spanish Wine Producers

Discover the wines of Alvaro Palacios, a Spanish winemaking tour de force with a fierce commitment to terroir and traditional, indigenous Spanish grapes. For another perspective, see the fresh, modern Bodegas Muriel - established in 1986 in founder Julian Murua’s family wine cellar, and building a reputation for consistently high-quality Rioja DO wines. With Grandes Viños y Vinedos, located in the old Monastery of Sán José de Aguarón, the Albariño Lagar de Cervera, and the family Viña Elena vineyard in Jumilla DO, the Spanish heritage of excellent wine is in safe hands.
