This young denomination in south-eastern Cuenca province was granted DO status in 2003.

Unusually the red wines, intense and with a marked personality, are certified not by the DO’s own tasting panel, but by the Instituto del Vino de Castilla La Mancha. 

Most producers are cooperatives, although there are also a private bodega. More than half of its wines are produced for export.
