Tim's Wine Market

This month we examine two wines from Iberia, both from ancient wine regions that are suddenly gaining worldwide acceptance. One comes from the mountains of northern Spain, where the vines are influenced by Atlantic and mountain climates. Then we move to Setubal, an obscure region south of the city of Lisbon in Portugal, where the vineyards also are impacted by the Atlantic and elevation. Both wines are perfect for early summer and can be served with a slight chill.
