Diversity is one of the pillars of Spanish wines. This diversity has its roots in Spanish cultural practices and in its orography. Strains and soils are an indissoluble binomial. The climatology, unique among the countries of its latitude, does the rest. 

The Spanish Denominations of Origin project their identity, the value of the "terroir", the cultivated varieties and the culture of the area.

The Ribera del Duero is located on the great northern plateau of the Iberian Peninsula. The relief of the area oscillates between the interfluvial ridges, with heights of 911 meters, and the valleys, with a topographic height between 750 and 850 meters. The intense cold of the Ribera del Duero, delay the outbreak of the vine. The abrupt changes in temperature between summer day and night, cause a perfect balance of fruit during ripening. In autumn a grape of great quality is collected.

The Priorat is a small mountainous region located in the heart of the Tarragona region. It has an area of 17,629 hectares, of which 1,930 are planted with vines and cultivated by nearly 600 growers. The topography of this area has been made to cultivate the vineyard slopes as steep slopes requiring, in some cases, build terraces.

The Denomination of Origin Catalunya extends to the northeast of the Iberian Peninsula, between the Mediterranean Sea and the Pyrenees. It has a Mediterranean climate, with many hours of sunshine, with dry and mild winters and not very hot summers. Spring and autumn tend to be the most unstable and rainy seasons. The average annual temperature is around 14-15ºC and rainfall ranges from 350 mm / year in the driest areas to more than 600 mm / year in the wettest areas. In the littoral and littoral, sea breezes regain solar heating, which is more intense as we move inland. On the coast, the climate is milder and temperate, with temperatures increasing from north to south, contrary to rainfall. The interior, far from the sea, presents a Mediterranean continental climate, with cold winters and hot summers. The predominant soils in the DO Catalunya are sedimentary deposits of calcareous nature, poor in organic matter and medium texture.

The Region of Bierzo is located in the north-west of the province of León. The vineyard in El Bierzo is characterized by an atomization of the plots, a small property and terrain with slope, from 450 to 800 meters whose hills orientated to the four cardinal points. The soil of the vineyard of the Bierzo is based on materials of the Miocene of texture is franc-loamy and moderately acid. The hillside soils consist of a mixture of thick elements, quartzites and slates.

The production area is located in the center of the island of Mallorca and its native variety is the"Manto Negro". The Serra de Tramuntana protects it from the cold northern winds, creating a benign microclimate. The terrain corresponds to quaternary continental sediments rich in calcium, giving rise to brown or brownish-limestone soils that sometimes have calcareous crust horizons. The relief is soft. The vineyards are located at an altitude of 75 to 200 meters above sea level.

This region has an enormous winemaking tradition since the fifteenth century, being then the main exporter of wine to America and the germ of the most famous spirits. The area of Sierra and Montes coexists with the Iberian pig, herds of cows and sheep, and even goats for the production of cheeses. The Sierra Norte de Sevilla Natural Park, an area declared as a Biosphere Reserve, belonging to the Natura 2000 Network, and whose skies were recognized in 2014 as the largest Starlight Astronomical Reserve in the world.

The D.O. Rías Baixas extends through a set of areas of Galicia that have a series of common physical conditions that identify and originate the characteristics of their wines. They are lowland, with altitude generally inferior to 300 m, near the sea and associated to the inferior sections of the fluvial courses, which formally conditions the climatic characteristics of Atlantic influence that manifests itself in soft temperatures and high precipitations, with a water fall in the summer months.
