Let’s Open a Bottle, ep. 18: D.O. La Mancha
/

D.O. La Mancha. One of the largest wine regions, if not the largest wine region, in the world, and certainly the largest in Spain. For centuries, this flat. open land has been the perfect place for grape-growing and winemaking and the tradition continues to this day. The actual size of the region itself should give you an idea of how important it has been to the region and Spain over the years.  Probably more famous for making lowcost standard wine, it has been slowly making a concerted effort to offer higher quality, without compromising its attractive price tag. Listen and learn more.

Let’s Open a Bottle 17: Rías Baixas and its Albariño Wine
/

Albariño is one of the great Spanish white wines, a stellar voice in a world dominated by red wine. It is probably the first white wine to appear in the Spanish wine revolution as a reference on an international level. Made mainly in the northwest region of Galicia, for years production was small meaning exposure was limited; but one thing is for sure, its quality was undisputed. Most of it is bottled and marketed under the D.O. Rías Baixas, a region whose name is synonymous with the wonder wine Albariño. Listen and enjoy!

Let's Open a Bottle 16: A tribute to Garnacha
/

The traditional grape variety Garnacha rarely got the recognition it deserved until recently when regions such as D.O. Campo de Borja and Calatayud (both in Aragon) started making quality and making the difference. Long known for their run-of-the-mill red wine sold in bulk to other countries, these two regions are now at the forefront of a new wave of Spanish red wine featuring an often overlooked grape variety. Garnacha made from old vines now stands on its own two feet and the world is taking note. Listen and enjoy.
