Expert’s Choice: Terra Alta

On the Catalan side of the border with Aragón, this lesser-known region deserves more recognition for its bright, fresh wines that beautifully capture the Mediterranean climate.

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.
