Viniculture in spain

Reserva red wineSpain is the country with the largest surface of vineyards in the world. Approx. 1,200,000 hectars of surface become managed by approximately 150,000 winegrowers in scarcely 5,000 Bodegas (wineries). From more than 250 different vine varieties wines in the most diverse styles and qualities are pressed. Although Spain admits more as a red wine country, 50% of the surface is with white vine varieties. Spain is thereby clearly the largest white wine manufacturer of the world. Who would have thought that.
