Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y La Mancha
Similar to the French Vin de Pays category, Vino de la Tierra is a recognition of quality wines made outside the precise areas designated Denominación de Orígen (DO). As Spain has only relatively recently established its system of quality labelling, there are significant areas of wine production which are capable of offering very good quality, but which have not yet been officially recognised as such.
Castilla y La Mancha is a vast area lying to the east and south of Madrid producing mainly red and rosé wines from Garnacha, Tempranillo, Bobal, Monastrell, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and a dozen other permitted varieties. For the whites that are produced here, Airén, Albillo, Macabeo and the international standards of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc dominate.
Some producers have managed to convince the authorities that their specific estates, or even specific vineyard sites, merit individual recognition, and this has resulted in a movement known as the Vinos de Pago, or Single-Estate Wines, but there remain plenty of other interesting, quality wines which continue to be produced under this humble denomination, for example our wines from Bodegas Calar.
