No wine producing country in the world has rolled out more excellent, formerly little-known wines during the past 20 years than Spain. Yet, amazingly, the roll out continues at a pace that is—if anything—accelerating to this day.
This phenomenon results from the combination of vast riches of very old vines and a new generation of widely-traveled, internationally trained winemakers striving to produce greatness from many formerly obscure grape varieties and growing regions. If you’ve never tasted fabulous wines like Godello from Valdeorras or Bobal from Utiel-Requena, you are hardly alone, but you owe it to yourself to experience a dozen rising wonders such as these from across Spain.
