Wines by Region
 
Spanish wine appelations are called Designation of Origin (D.O.) and there are 68 in the country. A Designation of Origin is a type of geographical indication which ensures a particular style of wine and characteristics which are essential and exclusive to the wine region in which it is produced. Producers who qualify for the Designation of Origin must maintain the highest possible quality and also follow certain traditional production methods, including the use of the region's traditional grapes.
