Wine from La Mancha

La Mancha is located in Spain, and is the largest continuous vine-growing region on the planet. Located in Central Spain, it includes 182 municipalities, 300 wineries, and 22,000 grape-growers. The region was registered as a Denominación de Origen, DO, in 1976.

The viticulture dates back to the 12 century when the ancient Romans introduced grape vines to the region. The production of wine become commercially viable in the 1940’s when multiple cooperatives were set up in La Mancha.

The climate in the region is continental with extremely cold winters and long hot summers. These extremes make grape growing challenging as the region only has an average of 12 to 16” of rainfall every year. The grapes that are planted in the region need to be tolerant as the winters are often accompanied by frost. During the summer, the temperatures can reach 104°.

The soil is homogenous and flat forming brownish red sandy clay that is rich in lime and chalk. The land rises from north to south and is 40 meters above sea level.

The Airen grape is the most popular producing rose wines, with Cencibel, Tempranillo, leading the red grape variety in the region. La Mancha is known for full-bodied Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
