Hot Off the Press - Our First Wine Map

¿Por qué Iberia?

Iberian Wine Map Now In Stock We started with Spain and Portugal for 3 main reasons:
  1. It's the most dynamic (and constantly changing) area in the wine world today
  2. There wasn't a good map currently available (for France there are a few)
  3. It's a great looking land mass!
This is simply the only up to date wine map of the region now available! The one very simple thing that distinguishes our approach to wine maps is that the wine regions don't stop at the border. In reality, wine regions reflect the regional differences that underlie the country borders. Catalunya and the Basque Country which both overlap France and Spain are just two examples. We're working on France and Germany right now which will be available early next year. Then on to Italy. And then to the New World! A big thanks to my graphic designer brother Mark who is mainly responsible for how good the the map looks and to Gabriella and Ryan Opaz of Catavino fame for their huge help in fact checking. The Wine Map of Iberia is currently available in our online shop for $29.95 and will soon be available on amazon.com and fine shops everywhere. They will also be available in Spain and Europe from Catavino in a few weeks.

Steve, it’s a pleasure to help you out, especially when this map was so desperately needed!! We’ll have our loose ends tied up here shortly, and will be happy to offer the map to the European community. Congratulations!

I am looking for a set of three maps. Spain, FRANCE and ITALY. I am building a cave under the house in Provence and something as you show for Spain would be a great enhancement.

Hi John,
The Wine Grape Varietal Table was printed 4 years before the Iberian Map. At that time, Mencia was one of the grapes that barely missed the cut – it will be included in future versions.

Interestingly enough, in just 4 years Mencia has gone from a rarity in the US to something on the tips of all wine geeks’ tongues!

Interesting that as a map of Iberian wine regions is published, the Spanish grape, Mencia, is not included on the wine varietal chart. I don’t mean the Cabernet Franc – Mencia, the the native varietal.
