Spain Your ideal Segway into wines of the old world. Spain has a long history of wine production, but its wines have recently come into distinction with international markets. With three broad climatic zones, and six geographical regions, this country boasts the highest vineyard acreage in the world. However, their yields are consistently relatively low due to vine spacing and limited water use. Spain is home for top varieties like Tempranillo, Garnacha, Monastrell and other indigenous grapes including Albariño, Airén, and Mencía.
