"Altos Levantinos"

Wine has been made on this land more than 2500 years ago, and it is documented as the oldest wine producing center in Spain. Important historic Iberian sites found in the region,called "Solana de las Pilillas", tell the stories of ancient wine making that echo throughout thousands of years.

In modern times, the Protected Designation of Origin (D.O.P) Utiel- Requena is one of the oldest appellations in Spain, formed in 1932. It is defined by nine towns and villages: Caudete de las Fuentes, Camporrobles, Fuenterrobles, Requena, Siete Aguas, Sinarcas, Utiel, Venta del Moro and Villargordo del Cabriel.

In this small, almost circular plateau of about 1,800 square km, located 70 km inland in the Valencian province, you will find around 34,000 hectares of vines cultivated in calcareous clay-like soils at an altitude of between 600 and 900 meters above the sea.

The terroir is characterized by a unique combination of Mediterranean and Continental climate. The Mediterranean breezes refresh and humidify the nights, while warm winds blow in from inland to dry the vines.

The vegetation in this region is strongly marked by the influence of the Mediterranean, and we enjoy the exceptional biodiversity having our vines grow alongside almond, walnut, olive, pine and oak trees. The abundance of aromatic plants such as fennel, rosemary and thyme also leave their notes in our wines.


Thanks to these unique conditions of our terroir, we benefit from natural, organic viticulture, not having to use pesticides and herbicides.
