Spain is the main wine-growing country in the world in hectares of vine cultivation. In addition, its great geographical, climatic and cultural diversity allows the production of very different wines depending on the region. Thus, the wine regions of Spain are of great importance when it comes to choosing a good wine. For example, a red from Ribera del Duero is not the same as a red from Priorat or El Bierzo. Even the same grape variety grown in different locations can vary greatly affected by factors such as soil, altitude, or climate.

France is the second country with the most hectares of vineyards in the world. For this reason, there is a large number of Château or wineries that make thousands of high-quality wines in different regions of the country.
The Terroir is of great importance when it comes to cataloging French wines. This is because French wine culture has traditionally identified the soil and its microclimate as a fundamental factor in wine production. In this way, normally the region of origin of the wine is well labeled as an important element of distinction of the wine. In addition, the legislation allows vineyards to be classified hierarchically according to their quality as "Premier Cru" and "Grand Cru" to highlight the great wines.
