Spain

Spain produces more than 14 percent of the world's wines in regions like La Rioja, Catalonia and the wet and humid Galicia region. Where the Spanish wines of a few decades ago were dry, dark and probably a bit unappealing to the modern palette, a technological makeover has updated Spain's approach to winemaking -- at least when it comes to reasonably priced white wines that taste fresh and fruity. Add to this the lasting appeal of Sherry, the Spanish lady that no EU country but Spain can claim as its own since 1996, and you have something to celebrate -- with a glass of wine, of course.
