Add A Spanish Section To Your Cellar
The fact is, it's neither hard nor expensive to add a reasonable selection of Spanish Wines to add interest and variety to your cellar. Probably the best advice is to keep it simple, but varied. You'll find a some suggestions in the Wines To Try Page.

A good place to start might be a bottle or two of:

* Rioja: Crianzas & Reservas [Red]
* Penedés: Crianzas & Reservas [Red & White]
* Ribera del Duero: Crianzas & Reservas [Red]
* Rueda: [White]
* Rias Baixas: "Albariño" [White]
* Jerez: Finos & Amontillados
* Cava: Brut & Seco
I very much favor the reds, and the Crianzas and Reservas tend to be quite good, and reasonably priced. Depending upon you personal taste (and of course budget), there's a lot to choose from in both cheaper everyday wines, and in the more expensive Reservas and Gran Reservas. Other choices might be:

* More Reds
Costers del Segre, Valdepeñas, Toro, and Campo de Borja
* Whites
Rioja, Txacolí, Ribiero and Valdepeñas
* "Sherries"
Montilla and Sanlucar de Barrameda
For more information on terminology and labels check the Label Page. There's also lots of useful data in the D.O. Regions Page. The D.O. system is a useful guarantee of quality, but there are also some interesting wines which do not qualify for D.O. labelling.
