Spain is one of the major world producers of wine: first in the ranking for plantings, third by production (due to one lower than France and Italy performance) and second world exporter in terms of volume.

The geographical location, climatic differences and the variety of soils, makes of the Iberian Peninsula and its islands a privileged place for the production of wines of very different characteristics. Vineyard is grown in all of the 17 autonomous communities in which divides the country, while nearly half of the total extension is located in Castilla - La Mancha, the geographical area with the largest expanse of the world dedicated to its cultivation.
