Spain’s Hidden Playground + a sneak peek at Portugal

December 17 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm EST

Spanish wine has a marketing problem. What will it take to put the nation’s wines on the map?

Spain is a hot, dry, mountainous country with more vineyard land than any other nation on earth. It could be argued that Spain is a viticultural miracle. After years on the sidelines of the world of fine wine, it is now a major player that we’ve got to learn more about.

If you were, say, mapping out which wine regions to visit on a vacation to Spain … Even some Spaniards wouldn’t know where to begin. Well, here’s a secret: No matter where you are on the Iberian Peninsula, you’re never far from a vineyard—so don’t overthink it. Barcelona is a commuter train away from the historic cava houses of Penedès. Bierzo, the region wine geeks can’t stop fawning over, is a pleasant, quiet drive from León. And the “Sherry Triangle,” though it sounds a tad foreboding, can be explored on a painless day-trip from Seville. Whether you’re a casual wine drinker or a seasoned sommelier, we’ll taste our way through how to weave some vineyard-hopping into your Spanish vacation.
