Updated on December 5, 2019 By Dan Cox 60 Comments By Dan Cox 60 Comments Spain Revealed - James Blick August 6, 2018 Have you tried wine from Ribera del Duero? What did you think? Reply Sampy Khe August 6, 2018 That lamb made drool like a baby :-)_ _ Reply Erin Houlihan August 6, 2018 Never tried Ribera, but I'm putting it on my list to try next! Great video. Reply Julia Blick August 6, 2018 Great explanation of the wine, could almost taste them from your description! Reply Emily Dulcich August 6, 2018 Cant wait till im old enough to drink! Reply h20ehs1 August 7, 2018 In love with you man! Haha Reply mrbojesper August 7, 2018 What a wonderful and enthusiastic video! Loved it! And that's my kind of food; simple, traditional and rustic with all the natural flavours! Reply Millie Garciara August 7, 2018 I also like Ribera wines. Try Protos wine. Really great. With seafood try a white Verdejo wine or a sparkling Peñascal rosé. Reply Millie Garciara August 7, 2018 Very good restaurante Asador de la Villa. Tasty Reply Yolanda Martín Mendieta August 7, 2018 Oh now I want to go back to Ribera region so badly!! Reply UnderneathTheBottle Wine Sommelier August 7, 2018 The way you interchange English and pronouncing Spanish Names amaze me!! Ribera del Duero is fantastic! Vega Sicilia is what's up!! 🍷😀 Reply twinkletoes800 August 7, 2018 Dear James & Yoli !! Thank you so much !! I had requested a video about Ribera del Duero wine a while back and so Im so greatful to you for doing this!!! I have always been drawn to this wine, its my absolute favourite but I knew nothing about it..just thats its exquisite :-)! This video has blown me away..to learn so much about it makes me love it more. Your passion for it transmitted perfectly across the screen. A million thanks to you both for the research and info. Yoli I hope you got some lamb too!! 🙂 Reply Andre Rolim August 7, 2018 Bretanomyces! That's the charm on spanish wines. I love it! Salud! Reply Raynato Castro August 7, 2018 Great video again. A lot of good information about the history, and excellent descriptions of each wine. Ribera is my favorite, unique flavor, definitely tastes like it's from a dry region–but it's harder to find in stores here in the Bay Area, except for specialty shops (like the Spanish Table or the Rockridge Market Hall). Rioja is easy to find in higher end grocery stores and fairly affordable; however, when you find a Ribera, it's always pricier… but worth it. It's a taste that transports me instantly back to Spain! Thank you and Yoli for making another great video! Reply Laura Blick-Moroney August 8, 2018 Great work! I learned so much👍 Reply Michele Blick August 8, 2018 The video was packed with fascinating information. Fantastic! Reply James Dulcich August 9, 2018 Wow, I love wine Reply Gallaghers Marrs August 9, 2018 As a Spaniard I must say you do an excellent job at representing Spanish gastronomy, in fact, the best I´ve seen on Youtube Reply tonydeltablues August 12, 2018 1) very informative (I didn't know the grapes were pre-phylloxera)2) love the enthusiasm and engaging nature3) I always choose Ribera when in supermarkets for the dark fruit and body4) I'd have happily offered to help you with the lamb and the 3 bottles you opened – yes, I know, I'm that kind of guy;-) Thank you and your wife for such high quality videos…I'm off to look to see if I can get those wines in the UK!RegardsTony Reply William Blick August 14, 2018 This video was very informative. Keep it up! Reply Pete Hamann August 18, 2018 You. Are. KILLING ME! Nice work! Reply Mar Casabuena August 27, 2018 Me encanta tu canal. Reply AT M August 28, 2018 Way to go JB! Bravo!2 glasses of wine for breakfast, that must be… the Masters' Breakfast. Reply GoldenAgeGamer September 20, 2018 A question about the lamb, James… How is it generally prepared? Is medium well an option? Reply AT M September 28, 2018 JB at his best. Bravo. Reply Prop Wash October 12, 2018 Lamb is my absolute favorite. I'll put this on my itinerary for sure. Thanks for all of the info!! 1 month to go!!! Reply Ignacio María Castaño García November 2, 2018 Great Review james, but you missed some of the most characteristic wines like Emilio Moro, Pago de Carraovejas o Vega Sicilia Reply Fercho loyo November 10, 2018 Best underrated All about Spain channel IMO!! Reply John Steen December 11, 2018 Happy to subscribe – we need more Yolanda though 🙂 I was walking in the north of Spain, through the Bierzo region. I thought the wine was some of the best I've tasted – I was wondering if you've tried it, and what you thought. John Steen Reply 8IreneFrostie December 23, 2018 Tus videos son de muy alta calidad, te auguro una pronta subida de seguidores 😛 I am learning a lot about my own country ahahaha thank you 🙂 Reply Jimmy Waterfall December 26, 2018 As spaniard I can state there are so many really good wines all over Spain. I mean, Ribera is the most common, quality stamp, but…you can find VERY VERY good wines in Extremadura (Ribera del Guadiana), in the north (Rioja), in El Bierzo… I mean is difficult to get a bad wine in Spain 🙂 Reply Billy B January 3, 2019 Great video , but im afraid i couldnt drinl much of your wine too expensive at 26 dollers a bottle . Ill stick to tescos at 4 pounds for a decent bottle Reply Susana Castaneda January 10, 2019 Merlot? what region come from? Reply Morten Rasmussen January 16, 2019 Glad I found your channel. Going to Spain this summer. Great informational videos! Reply 360 Smart January 19, 2019 Great review James, Spanish wines are some of my favourites and great value for money. I love everything that you have done on youtube keep up the great work. Reply omnidani January 25, 2019 Ya lo dijo Rajoy… Viva el vino!!! Jajaja Reply AureKsKis February 1, 2019 yoli te queremos!! Reply Piku Sadarangani February 5, 2019 How about showing different brands of vermuts and taste test? Reply Jose Luís Torre February 8, 2019 Te doy las gracias amigo por vender tan bien nuestra gastronomía en el habla inglesa. Se te ve apasionado, sigue asi brother. Reply Clasius79 February 15, 2019 el mejor vino del mundo ribera del duero Reply Ian Leonard February 20, 2019 We drove to Logrono to meander the route de Pinchos ! We found it to be dirty and the pinchos served were poor quality . The white wine of the region was a pleasant and enjoyable surprise. Our house in France is 100 kms from the Spanish border and the best typical Spanish town for us is Girona. If you ever travel to Logrono you must eat at La Cocina de Ramon ,Fabulous food !!!! Reply popeye el marino February 27, 2019 Spanish wines are the best in the world in quality and price. Reply blue nor March 19, 2019 como se llama la abula? Reply Sara Helena Stephanell March 19, 2019 Hi James & Yolanda ¿Qué tal? Another great informative, entertaining and fun video! Love your videos! And you are such a sweet great couple❤️ huge thumbs up! Please keep up the great work and keep the videos coming!🤣 Cant wait to see more love from Sara in Dinamarca Reply Jose Díaz April 3, 2019 Hola amigo, este tema me suna rico e interesante y me gustaria pedirte si me puede explicar la diferencia entre Rioja tradicional y Rioja moderna. Gracias amigo estaré esperando tu respuesta. Reply P M April 3, 2019 His accent sometimes sounds American. Maybe Spanish + New Zealand = American?? Reply Efecto Domino April 7, 2019 You still don't try the best of the best of the Rivera: CARMELO RODERO and VEGA SICILIA! Reply Efecto Domino April 7, 2019 I'm Mariana from Aranda de Duero and the name of roasted lamb is LECHAZO, and is the little lamb that he only drank milk. Un cordial saludo! Reply Jim Simonelli April 11, 2019 I just recently found your YouTube channel. I’m really enjoying it. I was stationed in Rota (Cádiz) 69 thru 71. In 2008 my wife and I returned and did a backpack and euro rail self guided tour of Spain. Your channel brings back many memories. Keep it going. Have a Fino for me. Jim Simonelli. Reply Sylvia Fernandez May 2, 2019 Hi James and Yoli. I'm originally from NYC from Cuban parents raised in Miami. My Cuban husband and I have visited Spain several times, and have taken your tips and enthusiasm on our adventures. We are now Vermouth drinkers at about 1:30pm and have our family joining in with us. Our grandparents were from Galicia and Asturias, so we were brought up eating Caldo Gallego and tortilla. We have truly enjoyed your zest for Spain and our experiences have been enhanced with your recommendations. As we relax after a long day at work, we're planning our next Spain travels based on your food and wine expertise. We love watching you guys and look forward to our September-October vacation. Vale!! You guys are amazing. Enbuena Hora!! Congrats!! Reply Rafael Mora Aguero May 24, 2019 Great again . Congrats ! Reply Rafael Mora Aguero May 24, 2019 Algo que me gusta bastante de tu forma de hablar sobre los productos españoles es que no te apoyas en la comparación con Francia , por ejemplo. Otra cosa , quizá has escrito ya alguna entrada sobre los quesos españoles, sino , ya va siendo hora…. Juajuajua , es broma, pero creo que es importante hablar del " Idiazabal " y el resto por supuesto. Reply Sue Greene May 31, 2019 How about visiting the different 'Denominaciones de Origen' of Galicia and his extraordinary food? Reply MONIKA V August 12, 2019 Great videos James and Yoli!:) Make more and more videos please, as it became my morning habit/ ritual to watch them:) I'm moving to Spain in a year, and can not wait, honestly your videos makes me sooo excited and also makes me wanna sit at your table and eat-drink together! You are a wonderful, cheerful couple! Its truly a great relaxation to explore your videos! Reply Roa de Duero September 10, 2019 Loved your video about Ribera del Duero, my home – Would have loved to see you eat and show one of the outstanding restaurants of the Ribera who are world-famous…such as the Nazareno or the Chuleta, in Roa, or the Asador de Aranda. Highly recommended. And, of course, the wine….walk the fields of the area and recognize the wonderful aromas in the Ribera wines you later drink, there is nothing better. Reply Pedro M Fernandez September 12, 2019 such a refreshing take on the subject. Will travel to Spain for the first time later this year.. Your videos really make a difference on how you you make a smoother intro to the gastro-culture. 🙂 Reply packer812 September 24, 2019 I was just in Spain and brought home some bottles of Ribera del Duero. I much prefer it over Rioja. Spanish wines tend to be under appreciated in my opinion. I also love Spanish whites from Galicia made from the Albarino grape. You can buy quality wines from that region for very little money, probably because it is not that well known outside of Spain Reply Greg G September 28, 2019 Dude, yes you are a super taster of wine. Putting words to flavors and odors is difficult. I know a couple other producers I visited in Ribera that you would love to visit. LMK. I can send you information. And some other places I have visited in other locations I want you to see. Visited over 24 Spanish wineries in 6 DOCs. In May I will pay a visit to at least another 6 DOCs! Reply villald October 5, 2019 Gracias! A punto dd visitar España por 4ta vez y nunca he ido a Ribera del Duero, acabo de añadir esa area en mi próximo viaje! Gracias amigo. Reply Ildar Pendzhiev November 26, 2019 I am sure you good guy, but for me too hard sale, to pushy, switched off in 2 min. Relax, you are in Spain ….
