! Guides & Reference
As The Spanish Wine Page continues to develop, there's a growing body of reference information available here. In order to better organize the both the content and the access to this more or less permanent data, I've set up this G & R index. This will also leave more space for new and future elements on the Home Page.

* Winemaking, Terminology and Labels
A basic guide to Spanish winemaking and a glossary of terms to help you interpret those sometimes confusing labels.
* A Quick Guide to The Top Regions, Best Years
Vintage Tables for both the "major" wine regions - Rioja, Penedés, Ribera del Duero, Rueda, and Valdepeñas, and the other D.O. regions as well. Also includes an ageing chart to get an idea of the "life expectancy" of the better known wines from Spain.
* How to Get Started
Some basic tips on wines to help start a Spanish section to your wine cellar.
* The Regional Wine Guide
This is the beginning of an evolving Guide to the Wines of Spain. At present there are only a few "bodegas" present, but this will change as the pages evolve. The Guide is organized by D.O. region, and also serves as a reference to the 40 recognized D.O. regions of Spain.
