There are, of course, numerous websites. Leaving personal preferences aside, we have chosen a few that can be valuable tools for keeping up with the latest trends in the wonderful world of wine. The websites on this list are the ones we usually read; however, they are for beginners rather than for connoisseurs, which means they are easy to read for anyone who just wants to broaden their knowledge of such a noble beverage as wine is.

–Spanish Wine Lover: As Amaya Cervera, the wine journalist who runs the Spanish Wine Lover project puts it, ‘I hope that Spanish Wine Lover, thanks to its bilingual format, contributes to spread the word about Spanish wines, regions, landscapes and wineries.’ The website is divided into three main sections, with Spanish wines at the core of them all. They are: ‘Learn about Spanish wine’, ‘Find Spanish wines worldwide’, and ‘Enjoy wine on your next trip to Spain’. In them you will find useful information about different aspects of wines from Spain, facts about Spanish wine around the world, news about wine tastings and wine tours, a bodega database, and a lot of practical information.
