7 Wines In Spain On Top 100 List – Wine Enthusiast Magazine

 

Vines In Spring

By Nancy Todd

Each year, Wine Enthusiast Magazine’s top tasters have the pleasure of sipping hundreds of wines to decide the Top 100 Best Buys of 2010. They review reds, whites, dessert, and sparkling wines and base their report on taste and price.

When the 2010 list was uncorked, Spanish wines represented seven producers on the list.  Competition was high with Italy, France, Argentina, U.S.,  etc. in the running.   The highest ranking Spanish wine was from Rioja, a 2005,  a Ramirex de Ganuza.   Alma de Lujon, 2005 from Murcia and  Castile’s Ribera del Duero made the cut.    Here is the complete list:

Wine Enthusiast Magazine was founded in 1988 informing readers of hundreds of wine reviews.  The magazine also includes recipes, events, lots of wine and wine related stuff to buy.    Whoever gets to do all this tasting has an easy job and in my next life, I want to be a wine taster.

Your Scoopettes, Regina and I, still love a good chilled glass of white wine by the glass for 1.50 – 2.50.  Beats the prices in the States and one more good reason to drink wine and live in Spain. Penedès, a beautiful region only a bottle of wine drinking time from Barcelona, continues to be a productive grape growing area.   The Scoopometer also raises a glass to the Priorat grape growing region, about two hours from Barcelona.
