5 Most Expensive Spanish Wines
Spanish wines, like their lands and their people, are known for their beautiful spicy, robust flavors and styles. The Temperanillo and Garnacha wines are the most common, and the Monastrell, Mencia, and Bobal styles follow in popularity. The true quality of a good Spanish wine is the aging process which takes place not only in an oak barrel but also in the bottle itself.
Although there are many wine-producing regions of Spain, there is a small handful that are truly famous. One of those is Ribero del Duero which houses one of the most established Spanish wineries, Vega Sicilia.
The Central Plateau, which is very close to the city of Madrid, produces some of the best valued Syrah, Temperanillo and Montastrell wines.
Below is a list of the five most expensive Spanish wines:
