Undiscovered Spain

Spain is one of the most dynamic and exciting places for winemaking at the moment. While Rioja, Cava, and Ribero del Duero have become established names around the world, there are winemakers and regions where they are returning to indigenous varietals and experimenting with modern winemaking. Some stunning wines are reimagining what wine from Spain can be. Raúl Pérez is known as one of the most visionary winemakers, and his Ultreia Clos St. Jacques give us a fluid, fresh, vibrant red wine from Bierzo. Envinate is a group of young winemakers exploring distinct vineyards throughout Spain, and their Albahra bursts with high-toned red fruit and spice. The Sierra de Gredos is a region to watch as high-altitudes bring finesse to Garnacha with revered winemaker Marc Isart. A Bobal from 100-year old vines, a stunning blend with Treixadura, and a young woman winemaker in Galicia highlight some of the exciting wines coming out of Spain.
