I just made it through this book in preparation for the Spanish wine educator’s class I will be taking next week.

The maps are pretty good; I kept my World Atlas of Wine closeby for comparison, but this book is much more up to date with many of the changes incurred by the 2003 Spanish wine laws included.

It travels by region, starting in the Atlantic Northwest and follows the country’s wine producing areas counterclockwise (kind of). Basic important information is clearly presented, such as permited yields, inclusion of varieties for DO approval, plus interesting history and info on local foods. Makes me want to have that ham made from the black footed pig and fried young manchengo cheese.
