The Balearics and the Canary Islands are all ostensibly part of Spain; wines made there all have "Product of Spain" printed somewhere on the label. However, outside of legal definitions, these island wine regions have little in common with the more familiar regions of mainland Spain. The unique geology and climatic influences of these islands give the wines made there a distinctive character and unrivaled intensity.
The same qualities of place that make these wines extraordinary also ensure that there's a very limited supply, so they do not often make it into the US. But as consumer interest in new and unusual wines grows more of them are turning up. Here at Wardman, we now have quite a collection of island wines, and it's time to give them some attention.
