The autonomous region (Cataluña, Catalunya) with its capital Barcelona is located in the north-east of Spain on the north-western edge of the Mediterranean. It covers 32,091 km² and is divided into the four provinces of Barcelona, Girona, Lleida and Tarragona. To the north, separated by the Pyrenees, Catalonia borders France and the dwarf state of Andorra, to the west Aragon and to the south-west Valenciana. The Balearic Islands, 200 kilometres off the coast, with the main island of Majorca, have much in common in terms of history and viticulture. Catalonia is officially bilingual; Catalan is also spoken in French Roussillon and on the Balearic Islands.

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
