The New Wines of Spain
Spain now ranks among the most modern of wine-producing countries, and the author of this book concentrates on the new wines of Spain, besides looking at some of the older style wines of renown. Since Spain's entry into the EEC, efforts have been made to improve its wines. There have been major changes towards the use of modern viticultural and oenological methods to make wines that will appeal to the modern wine-drinker and change the image of Spanish wines.
