The foremost fine wine region in Spain  has historically always been Rioja, whose wines are famed for their oakey vanilla flavours. However, the supremacy of Rioja is under pressure because this picturesque, hospitable country has many  more value for money hidden wine treasures to unearth.

In particular the gutsy Jumilla or the mellow Navarras or the international barnstorming reds from Penedes and Priorat are well worth discovering for their depth of flavours, quality and formidable winemaking craftsmanship.
