A GLIMPSE AT THE SPANISH WINE INDUSTRY
“The increasing sophistication of Spanish consumers was the major factor impacting the wine industry in Spain during 2015, with the use of new technologies boosting their knowledge of the subject. Customers tended to be more interested in the quality and the origin of the wine than they were during the review period, when price was a key driver of sales. Wine consumption has gained strength as a cultural phenomenon, with wine tourism being an important factor behind this trend, especially in Spain which is the world’s third-largest wine producer.”

The first category is in turn classified into subcategories such as Denominación de Origen (DO), Denominación de Origen Calificada (DOC, also known as DOQ or DOCa) or Vino de Pago (VP), whereas the second is classified into Vino de la Tierra (VdlT) and Vino de Mesa (table wine, without area designation).
