Varietal: Petit Verdot
A late ripening Bordeaux varietal, that is still grown to a small extent in the region with most plantings located in the Medoc (left bank). It's a useful grape for the vigneron capable of surviving rot brought on by humid conditions thanks to it thick skins. When ripe it can make concentrated, tannic wines worthy of extended maturation and can also contribute a spicy note as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon. The grape can also be found occasionally, as a varietal wine in California and parts of Chile and Argentina.

Country: Spain
With more area under vines than any other country, it ranks third in terms of quantity of wine produced. The range of its wines is a reflection of the country's regional climatic diversity ranging from the rich and sumptuous reds of the hot and arid Ribera del Duero to the light, crisp whites of the cool Atlantic region of Galicia and Basque Country. For some of the country's best reds, try the regions of Rioja, Navarra, Ribera del Duero, Priorat, and Murcia. Spain is also responsible for some of the world's finest fortified and dessert wines, the finest of which come from the town Jerez (Sherry), in Andalucía.

Region: La Mancha
La Mancha is the largest delimited wine region not only in Spain, but in the whole of Europe. Occupying almost one half of the large Castilla-La Mancha region, the La Mancha viticultural area covers a vast expanse of the central Iberian plateau, and is bordered by Valencia and Murcia to the east, Extremadura to the west, Andalucia to the south and Madrid to the north-west. There are more than 500,000 acres (202,350ha) of vineyard here, spread over 182 municipalities and four provinces (Albacete, Cuenca, Ciudad Real and Toledo).

Sub-Region:

Type: Red
Red wine is wine made from dark-coloured grape varieties. The color of red differs based on the grapes variety or varieties used. Interestingly, black grapes yield a juice that is greenish-white. The actual red color comes from anthocyan pigments (also called anthocyanins) from the skin of the grape (exceptions are the relatively uncommon teinturier varieties, which produce a red colored juice). Most of the production centers around the extraction of color and flavor from the grape skin.
