Spain is known all over the world for its fine cuisine. Of this well known cuisine an integral part is the ham produced in this country. The most popular Jamon in the country is the Iberian ham. The ham itself is steeped in history and tradition. Much like the prestigious wines of the region, Iberico ham is a very protected product. In this sense, every ingredient added in the production of this ham is controlled closely. At the same time, the careful process of producing this masterpiece of a product is scrutinized as well. It is for this reason that the ham is given a protected denomination of origin. The ancient oak pastures of Spain, the noble black Ibérico pig, the mountain air which caresses each ham as it magically is transformed into one of the world's most exquisite foods - all play a part in this uniquely Spanish phenomenon.
Iberico ham is a gourmet product so it makes sense to enjoy it with wines that complement its flavors. Experts have special recommendations for how to pair this essential product of Spanish gastronomy in order to find the perfect match.
