The beauty and bounty of Spanish wine is on full display this year among the bottlings available in the U.S. Wine lovers can enjoy everything from sparklers to dessert wines, including vibrant whites, fruity rosés and rich reds, with examples from grapes both native and international. These wines also showcase the scope of Spain’s geography, hailing from an array of regions throughout the country, each with its own distinctive climate, terroirs and winemaking traditions.
