written by John Perry | 11th March 2015

Editor’s Note: With more people opting to save money with Airbnb and Casa Rural (rural house) rentals when visiting Spain, it’s difficult to know how to stock your wine cooler.

written by Gabriella Opaz | 23rd February 2015

In 2013, Spanish winemaker, Juan Manuel Gonzalvo, presented me with my very first glass of Bobal at a wine tasting in Madrid.

written by John Perry | 27th February 2014

In the Spanish autonomous province of Valencia, you can discover a remarkable variety of landscapes far from the long beaches of golden sand found in most conventional tour guides. Dry, desert-like areas, river valleys and fertile foothills give rise to great diversity in the wines made here. The region encompasses three DOs: D.O. Valencia, D.O. Alicante and D.O.
