''The Spanish wine industry in general is developing and coming up with many interesting wines, which appeals to todays consumers. Grandes Pagos de España is in the forefront, with high quality producers, representing the top end of Spanish winemaking. Some of the best wines from different terroirs of Spain are produced by the members of Grandes Pagos, they represent an impressive level of winemaking knowledge. Many producers also have interesting bodegas, some historic and others ultra modern, to visit for wine tourists, who want to experience, first hand, Spanish wine production in the premier league.''
