Valdepenas DO Temperature, Rainfall and Sunshine

The vines of Valdepeñas DO are located at the south of Castile- La Mancha, among the south of Spain, the Mediterranean regions, Extremadura and the central plateau. With a long wine production history, this Denomination has a unique style.

Since many Airén grapevines were planted after phylloxera destroyed the vineyards here in 1911, Valdepeñas created its own personal style. 

Today, there is increasing interest in smooth, velvety aged reds, together with whites and rosés. The star grape here is the Tempranillo (Cencibel).

Close attention to quality control, new developments in winemaking technology and marketing expertise augur well for the wines of this DO.
