/

We’ll start our wine region review with a visit to what just may be the white wine capital of Spain, D.O. Rueda. Not that there aren’t other regions with fantastic white wine, but I think we’d be hard pressed to find one which has taken the market by storm the way Rueda has. It’s one of the most successful chapters of the Spanish Wine Revolution. Listen and enjoy!

We are now right smack in the middle of the Middle Ages and many regions are ready to establish kingdoms and move south to push out the Muslims. These kingdoms and other territories will draw the regional map of modern Spain. To understand this period is to understand Spain today. In this episode we have tried to help you get a basic grasp of the different kingdoms, counties and territories. Hope it has worked. Enjoy!

Unusual and extreme weather seems to be the news of the summer around the globe in 2022, and Spain is proving to be no exception as it is enduring a very long dry spell and high temperatures, even in places that were traditionally immune to this kind of weather.
