Wine tourism and winery trips attract million visitors to Spain every year, Australia to follow... | The Insight Files |

Wine tourism and winery trips are very much appreciated by tourist and travellers, becoming a fantastic way to discover our country diversity. Spain is the biggest vine-growing area in the world, with more than 1 million Ha of plantations with diverse terrains and climatic conditions.  In terms of production we are the third, and the second global wine exporters after France.


In Spain you might find lots of famous  and interesting wineries all over the country, from the North to Southern Andalusia, from Mediterranean coast to Portugal borders.  Vines may be found growing in quite desert areas, next to the sea, or in landscapes blanketed by snow, but generally, vineyard development benefits from a warm and relatively dry climate with lot of sunlight and long summers.
