Region

Catalonia is the region surrounding Barcelona in northeast Spain that enjoys a long history of winemaking going all the way back to the time of the Phoenicians and Greeks. The region is known for its breadth and diversity as its proximity to France has been a major influence. Catalonia is best known as being the home of Cava, Spain's version of sparkling wine made through the Champagne method from the Macabeo, Parellada, Xarel-lo and Chardonnay grapes. The red wines of Catalonia are very similar to what is produced in France on the other side of the Pyrenees in Roussillon. These include Tempranillo, Grenache, Monastrell (known as Mourvedre in France) and Bordeaux style blends.
