Geography – what do you know?

So the Ministry of Education in Ontario forces every student to take grade 9 geography.  Useful.  I want my children to know that Halifax is to the east, Vancouver to the west, and there is a little something called the Atlantic Ocean that prevents us from driving in our car to Spain.

Here’s a little map that can help you out if you know nothing about Spanish wine.  The keys to this map?  Look north of Madrid  to Rioja and Ribero del Duero if you want to spend a lot of money but you don’t care because it’s worth it.  Look high and left if you need a crisp white – Rias Biaxis makes me giggle for some reason. And look at the purple regions if you want a good deal.

Spain wine mapI got this from the folks at Bodegas Altanza’s facebook page – who got it from someone else – who probably cut and pasted it from elsewhere.  Now it’s ours.  I love this internet!
