I can't justify spending $$$$ on wine from Spain when I know how cheap it is in Spain.I splurge on Marques de Caceres-under $10- and Marques de Riscal-a little over $10- in USA!

Crisco,

Do you like Albarinos? Do you have Plum Market and/or Trader Joes? There are some pretty good selections there for Spanish wines. I know what you mean about not wanting to spend a lot. Better to spend the money to make the trip than for the bottle, I always say!!!

The wine is a boutique very special market for a sweet grape variety so outside my tastes range. But Spanish wines are getting lots of cudos over the last few years,and the price goes up as in other countries ::)

and yes if anything save the money to drink it in Spain lol!!! I had last week here a paso señorans albarino from ria baixas Galicia. Had it on site with friends last month in San Ciprian, Lugo,Spain ::)

The cava from Penedès comes from a good winery, so it's probably all right. I haven't tried it.

The Ordóñez wine is a sweet Malaga style wine. I think it goes for something like 30 euros in Spain. I've tried it and it's good but I question the price tag too. I know a lot of work goes behind these wines, but still...

The fancy Malaga wines tend to run in the neighborhood of 15-40 euros, though you can't go wrong with a Malaga Virgen for about 6 euros!

Most are made from the Pedro Ximénez or Moscatel grape varieties. The PX are especially thick, rich wines with a very raisiny flavor. I get tired of them pretty quickly but they are tasty in small doses!

yes pedro ximénez is the grape after a noble soldier in the region, and we have the tradition of having them with an egg yolk inside, great in the mornings too ::)
the best are from Mueller and Larios from the montilla-moriles area ,as I said they are drank in special occasions not really every day wines. Ordoñez is one of the up and coming bodegas doing very well.
cava is not good, I rather drink Champagne ::)

I am a wine collector drinker lol!! I even have with friends a site that list all Spanish bodegas that mm let posted here once....
