The best wines regions of Spain (D.O)

Would you like to try Spanish wines?, or perhaps you want to buy a bottle of wine as a present but have no idea what to choose. The "Denomination of Origin" (D.O), written on each bottle's label, is a guarantee of quality. If you don't want to risk, the classic Rioja and Ribera are definitely a great choice for red wines, and Jerez is a typical sherry. However some vineyards from other regions may surprise you.
Vote for your favorite "Denomination of Origin" or wine regions of Spain on this list.
