Rioja Wine

The notable quote is:

Spain is the third-largest wine-producing nation in the world (after Italy and France) but production happily tends to steer towards artisanal methods. Adrian Castro, bar manager at Spanish importer Brindisa explains, “Smaller productions are run by grower winemakers rather than massive operations where grapes are bought from surrounding plots.” Wines are ‘terroir-driven’, meaning they’re made with less oak, allowing the characteristics of the grapes and soil to shine through. “The direction in Spain is pretty much towards organic and biodynamic principles too,” says Castro, with “intervention in the vineyard and cellar kept to a minimum.”
