Spain is well known for its wine, quality reds from Rioja and Ribera del Duero, reds and whites from Penedes, fine whites from Rueda, "sherries" from Jerez, and fine sparkling wine known as cava. Almost every village in Spain produces its own wine, and the quality to a greater degree depends on the variety of grapes produced in each area, the quality of soil and climatic conditions.
