Located on the Iberian Peninsula, Spain has over 2.9 million acres (over 1.17 million hectares) planted--making it the most widely planted wine producing nation but it is only the third largest producer of wine in the world, the largest being Italy and France. The country has an abundance of native grape varieties, with over 600 varieties planted throughout Spain though 80 percent of the country's wine production is from only 20 grapes--including Tempranillo, Albarino, Garnacha, Palomino, Airen, Macabeo, Parellada, Xarel·lo, Cariñena and Monastrell.

Spanish wine laws created the Denominación de Origen (DO) system in 1932 and were later revised in 1970. As of 2007, there was 67 DOs across Spain.
