  • Sarah Jane Evans is one of the most highly regarded global commentators on the wines of Spain, an in-demand speaker, wine judge and Master of Wine
  • Book follows on from the success of Evans' The Wines of Northern Spain, also in the Classic Wine Library, published in 2018
  • Aside from Sherry, many of southern Spain's regions, particularly the island wines, are less well known than their northern counterparts, making this an ideal book for more adventurous wine lovers
Full Description

The companion volume to Evans’ The Wines of Northern Spain explores the great variety of wines produced across the rest of Spain. Beginning in the east with Catalunya, the book journeys south down the Mediterranean coast to the Levante. The heart of Spain, including Madrid and La Mancha, is explored before we reach Andalucia in the south and voyage on to the Balearic and Canary Islands. The regions covered could not be more different, separated by language, customs and history as well as by gastronomy and wines. After a chapter on key grape varieties Evans explores each region in turn, relating its history, exploring current trends in winemaking and viticulture and profiling the key producers. There is also a chapter on Spain’s sparkling wines.
