About Vino de la Tierra de Castilla

Located 40 miles south of Madrid, the Castilla-La Mancha autonomía lies in the heart of Spain. The majority of wine production relies on the varieties Cencibel—a regional clone of Tempranillo—as well as Airén, a relatively neutral white grape that thrives in this hot and arid region. Recently, many new vineyards have been planted with a variety of local and international red grape varieties, particularly Cabernet Sauvignon, Garnacha, Merlot and Syrah. While the prestigious DOs of Castilla-La Mancha have more stringent viticulture and winemaking restrictions than the lesser Vino de la Tierra de Castilla designation, quality wines can certainly be found. Most commonly, these red blends are full bodied with ripe tannins and robust fruit and spice aromas. The rated selections in our Vino de la Tierra de Castilla Ratings can range from reasonably inexpensive to some of the highest priced in the Castilla-La Mancha region.
