ABOUT CASTILLA LA MANCHA
Located in central Spain, the land of Don Quixote fame is the largest delimited wine region not only in Spain, but in the whole of Europe. Winemaking is thought to have originated here in Roman times, and was certainly widespread during medieval times. La Mancha has an extreme continental climate. Summer daytime temperatures regularly exceed 104F (40C), but drop dramatically as darkness falls. Winters are cold, with sub-zero temperatures and frequent frosts. These dramatic climatic variations, along with low annual rainfall (on average 14in/350mm) favor the stress of the vineyard in the final stage of ripening, yielding wines of great quality with the right winemaking techniques and careful grape selection.
