Description

In one of the environmental conditions appropriate for a h i t as natural as the grape, the work of winegrowers, winemakers and oenologists has come together to turn this land into one of the most important regions in the Mediterranean area. The grape varieties of tempranillo, garnacha, mazuelo and viura. among others, for both red and white wines or sherries, cover a significant surface area of vineyards, as well as Denominaciones de Origen which afford renown to the wine or, as is the case of the Rioja Denominacion de Origen, are representative of an autonomous region. The different processes applied to the wines, together with the way they are commercialised on the market, as

Vignerons, crianza, reserva or gran reserva, have a worldwide reputation that has turned the wines into a model for production and exports. All this reputation has incorporated a typically Mediterranean crop into the farming landscape, and nowadays it can be said that it has easily adapted to the most diverse environments, but continues to be a cultural dimension of the Mediterranean world.
