Episode 371: The Wines of Spain

January 3, 2009

This week we're taking you to Spain, to the little known region of Galicia, just north of Portugal. The area may be best known for the pilgrim trail leading to Santiago de Compostela, where the remains of St. James are believed to be interred, but we were there for the wine. This past summer we spent a week on a bus with a group of journalists exploring the area's emerging wine region, and lived to tell you this tale!
