Spanish Wine Map

The Iberian Peninsula produces a stunning and varied array of wines. The classic reds of Rioja and Ribiera del Duero, the graceful albarino from Galicia, rose from just about everywhere but especially from the emerging region of Navarre, the ports and vinho verdi from Portugal and of course the wonderful sherries.

A new map of the Iberian Peninsula now been published. Detail below.

The map has been produced by Steve De Long, the guy behind the wine varietal chart. It is accurate and contains detailed information. Wouldn't it look stunning on your wall.
