Penin’s Spanish Wine Guide has been Released

Penin

Just wanted to give everyone the update that Penin’s Wine Guide has just be released in the US. We, personally, have been using the Spanish version of this guide since our arrival to Spain, where it is considered one of the principle guides of spanish wine, and have felt it is an invaluable resource. We don’t know whether or not the translation is completely up to par – and being that very few things are translated into any other international language in Spain, especially grammatically correct English, we sincerely doubt it – but we can promise that we will do our level-headed best to check it out and give you the full update after we’ve done our research.

    I just got my own copy of the 2007 edition a couple days ago. I first found the Penin Guide when I bought a copy of the 2006 edition. I think it is an informative book, as well as a good value. It is over 1100 pages long and the first few hundred pages are an educational section on wine in general, with some specifics on Spanish wines. And it comes in a convenient trade sized paperback. There is certainly an extensive section of wine reviews. I don't know how good the translation is, but it seems to read well.
