Visiting a Spanish winemaker in the south of Spain recently, I had driven down to see her from Terra Alta. She asked, ‘Where?’, and I repeated, Gandesa in Terra Alta. Again she queried, where?
If a Spanish wine industry professional is not clear on the region’s location, it’s hardly surprising that there are still far too few wines from Terra Alta in foreign markets. That’s such a shame, and I’ll tell you why.
