A wine map of Spain and Portugal is the best way to get your head around the importance of the Iberian Peninsula in the world wine scene.

Spain has more land under grapes than any other country, over 30% more than in France or Italy. Portugal is the fourth highest in terms of area under grapes in Europe.

Iberian wine grape varieties, especially Tempranillo from Spain and Touriga Nacional from Portugal are being planted extensively around the globe, including in Australia.

Winemakers are gaining experience with them and the momentum for both are growing as more are coming onto the market.

Consumers are catching on so the thirst for knowledge about Spanish wine regions is growing.

But most people have only a hazy idea of the wine areas on the Iberian Peninsula so it is timely that Steve De Long has just released his new Wine Map of the Iberian Peninsula.

We all know that Portugal makes port, but what about its other important wines, such as Vinho Verde or the dozens of other wine styles and demarcated regions. You'll be surprised how diverse and interesting the wines of Portugal are.

There are dozens of other regions as well.
