Hispania is not Latin for Iberia, but for Spain (Hispania/España means "land of rabbits", while Iberia means "land of the Iberian tribes). The confusion probably arises from the fact that in Roman times Hispania also included Portugal (basically the province of Lusitania), so geographicaly speaking the past time Hispania and the present time Iberia cover the same area.

So therefore it is the Latin name for both. It's the Latin name, not a Latin translation.

Not really. The Latin for Iberia would be Hiberia. (https://la.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hiberia)
Iberia is a geographical term. Hispania is a political one. It's an incorrect translation.

ribera (del duero) for the wine regio maybe? maybe not as well known, but with a far better reputation. the top producers of ribera (vega sicilia, pingus) are considered to be amongst the best red wines in the world. but i totally understand rioja as the answer. bit of a winegeek here.
