Jumilla DO was created in 1996. Its current regulations were approved in November 1995, replacing those of May 1975. Last amendment is from April 2012.

It is one of the oldest DO in Spain. Jumilla's wines have been revealing new potential since the early 1990s. Careful harvesting and investment in new equipment has improved the wines' quality. The result is a new generation of elegant wines, some organic, and the majority young, in which the Monastrell grape is showing remarkable results in the hands of skilled winemakers. Jumilla wines have, therefore, begun to make an impact abroad.

Associated to this DO a wine route has been created, Ruta del Vino de Jumilla, to develop tourism around wine. Among its attractions it offer a wine museum, and archeological museum and an etnographic museum. In mid-August a week-long festival celebrates the arrival of the grape harvest.
