Wine market in Spain - statistics & facts

The wine sector is extremely relevant in Spain, not only from an economic and environmental point of view, but also socially and culturally. No matter if red, white, sweet, or fortified, wine in general is one of the favorite drinks to accompany traditional tapas, and that also qualifies as a key element in Spanish socializing. Broadly speaking, under the Spanish classification system, wines are categorized into Denominación de Origen Protegida (Protected Designation of Origin, PDO), such as the popular Rioja or Ribera del Duero, Indicación Geográfica Protegida (Protected Geographical Indication, PGI or local wines) and Vino de Mesa (table wine). The most consumed wines in the country do not have any certification and are for the most part still wines. Also, reds are generally preferred over whites or rosés.
