Spain is a treasure trove of great wines at terrific prices. It is also a country blessed with a diversity of regional tastes. From the rich and heady reds of the sunny southeast to the crisp wines from the Northwest’s “Green Spain”. I am a big fan. Here are a few of my best buy wines available here at Top Ten Liquors.

The family of Juan Gil is celebrating their 101st year in the wine business. Their Monastrell is one of our most popular reds for the last 10 years. The Gil Family have earned legions of loyal wine lovers with this bold, rich and dark libation. Monastrell is the Spanish grape name for Mourvedre (French). It is an extremely drought resistant varietal that makes for wines with deep color and flavors of roasted berries and dark chocolate.

The Esteve family has been farming in the Penedes region of Spain for a couple of centuries. They are an estate winery which means they own all of their vineyards and they are makers of unique wines such as this white which is a great foil for sushi, seafood, and salads.

The Evodia Garnacha is a great buy at less than $10 per bottle. Garnacha is the most planted red grape in Spain. The wine is nicely extracted and full bodied. If you are looking for an interesting alternative to a wine like Apothic Red, here it is. Enjoy!

Cheers!

Juan Gil Monastrell D.O. Jumilla
Spanish Wine
“The wine has a very dark cherry color with purple tones and powerful aromas of red berries with toasted and smoked notes from its aging in the oak barrels. It shows a good structure with ripe and sweet tannins. There is great depth in the mouth with a perfect balance between fruit, alcohol and the oak tones, which make it very pleasurable.” Winemaker’s notes
