Wine Review Report:

Last reviewed: 9 February, 2021
The Spanish DO area is located in the region of Catalonia. It used to be part of the Penedès area and was only classified in 2001 on the initiative of the famous oenologist and winery owner Miguel A. Torres (*1941). The vineyards cover 3,600 hectares. The area is divided into two geographically separate zones. The first zone forms the triangle Tarragona in the south, Barcelona in the northeast and Lleida in the northwest, and the second zone is located north of Girona, right on the border with France at the foot of the Pyrenees. The main white wine varieties are Chardonnay, Macabeo, Parellada...

One of the 17 regions (Spanish Cataluña, Catalan Catalunya) in the northeast of Spain with the four provinces Barcelona, Gerona, Lérida and Tarragona. It is located on the north-western edge of the Mediterranean Sea and covers 32,000 km². The area has an extremely eventful history: in the 6th century BC the Greeks came, then the Carthaginians and finally 200 BC the Romans. The wines from today's DO area Alella were already drunk by the Roman Caesars. The capital Barcelona was already in the antiquity an important trade port. In the 6th century A.D., the Alans and Visigoths arrived, from which the name is derived (Gotalonien =...

Viticulture in Spain has an ancient tradition, as vines were cultivated here at least 5,000 years ago. The Phoenicians founded the city of Gadir (Cádiz) around 1100 BC and traded heavily in wine in the Mediterranean region. The first flowering occurred in 200 BC, because the Romans loved the wine from Baetica (Andalusia). Development was halted by the Moorish invasion in 711. For religious reasons, the Muslims cleared large parts of the vineyards or only allowed the production of sultanas. They brought with them the art of distillation, which was not used for alcoholic beverages, however, but for essential oils, as...

The white grape variety originates from Spain (Middle East by hypothesis). Synonyms grouped alphabetically by country are Gredelin, Lardot, Maccabéo, Maccabeu, Ugni Blanc (France); Charas Blanc (California); Macabeu, Subirat, Subirats, Viura, Vuera (Spain). Despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological similarities, it should not be confused with the varieties Alcañón, Trebbiano Toscano (Ugni Blanc) or the genetically similar Xarello. DNA analyses carried out in 2013 revealed a parentage of Hebén x Brustiano Faux (not identical to...

The white grape variety comes from Spain. Synonyms are Martorella, Moltonach, Montañesa, Montona, Montònec, Montònech, Montònega, Montòneo, Montònero, Parellada Blanc, Perellada, Verda Grossa. It was already widespread in Aragon in the 14th century under different names. In the 15th century, the German doctor (personal physician of the king's daughter Mary of Castile) and hobby winemaker Jaume Roig (+1478) prepared a Montònec white wine, from which King Juan II. (1378-1479) was delighted with. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2013, it is a presumably natural cross between the Spanish Hebén x unknown partner....
