Wine from Jumilla

Jumilla is a wine region in Spain. The DO, known as Spanish Denominacion de Origen for wines extends over the region just north of Murcia. This also includes the municipality of Jumilla, and the southeast of the Albacete province. To date there are 32,000 hectares of vines under the Jumilla region. 45% of those grapes are Murcia, and 55% are Albacete. Jumilla has 3,000 grape-growers currently registered in the DO.

The climate in Jumilla is continental featuring cold winters and very hot and long summers. So close to the Mediterranean Sea, the wine region of Jumilla is arid and has very little rainfall, which averages about 33 mm per year.  The irregular precipitation usually occurs during fall and spring. Severe rain and thunderstorms hit the region during the fall and spring and could cause damage to the vines. The annual average temperature is 16°C although occasionally a maximum of 40°C can be reached during the summer months. During the winter it is not uncommon to see temperatures hit well below 0° C. Frost can occur during March and April. The grape vines get well over 3,000 hours of sunlight every year.

Other crops that are grown in the wine region of Jumilla include olives, and fruit trees. The region’s most popular grape is Monastrell.
