Spain: Penedes & Navarra

What About the Penedes & Navarra?
The Penedes and Navarra are two northern Spanish regions that are becoming more and more prevalent in the modern marketplace. While the Penedes is best known for producing the majority of Spanish sparkling wine (Cava), it is also fertile ground for table wines. At present both regions are excelling in "value for money" international varietals such as Cabernet and Chardonnay. The reds in particular have shown promise, and following the lead of the long established Torres winery, smaller boutique producers are releasing more and more super premium bottlings. While the wines tend to be just sound now, the future may bring with it more than a handful of world class gems. At the moment however, these appellations are providing excellent value.
