Explore the wines from these wonderful wineries from the Valencia Region of Spain.
Valencia region of Spain has been inhabited since the earliest times by Phoenicians, Greeks, Iberians, and Romans. Its important Arabic legacy through the irrigation system and crops still survive in agriculture and traditional crafts. Valencia is a leading exponent of Mediterranean cuisine, delicious healthy recipes, based on fresh fish, seafood, fruit, and vegetables. Paella and rice dishes are the most emblematic choices.
Rice and oranges are the most treasured crops in this region, but also grapes have been grown in the region since the Neolithic era. Valencian soil grows native blends to produce great wines with the appellation of origin, the best indicators of quality and first line heritage.
Valencia region of Spain has three officially recognized denominations of origin: Alicante, Utiel-Requena and Valencia. The Alicante DO stands for very straightforward, fruity wines with medium bodies and outstanding tannin levels, using Monastrell, alexandría muscatel and tempranillo grapes and other varieties such as cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and Syrah. The Requena – Utiel DO stands for balanced and fresh rosés, with an agreeable flavor, and the reds have medium-full bodied, savory and elegant, provided by the red bobal grape thriving with bobal, Tempranillo, cabernet-sauvignon, and Merlot. Valencia DO has four sub-zones - Alto Turia, Clariano, Moscatel de Valencia and Valentino - with a Mediterranean climate enjoying variable sea influences, giving rise to highly appreciated whites, rosés, and reds exported throughout Europe. Merseguera, malvasía, Tempranillo, Monastrell, and Moscatel (romano or alexandría) are the most popular varieties.
