There are many other grapes grown here though, from Carignan to Chardonnay.

It’s traditional to age Spanish wines for a long time in oak barrels. Many wines in Spain are defined by their ageing criteria, based on the minimum length of time the wine is aged in both barrel and bottle.

These include Joven, Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva.
