La Mancha

The setting of Miguel Cervantes' novel Don Quixote, La Mancha, is the largest denomination of origin in the world with 180,000 hectares under vine spread across an immense plateau at an average height of 700 meters above sea level. La Mancha suffers due to its extreme continental climate which forces vintners to space the vines 2.5 meters apart to compensate for the limited moisture during the growing season. White Arien grapes yield white wines with low acidity and high alcohol, and red Cencibel grapes produce easy to drink red wines, both of which continue to dominate the region. Despite La Mancha's reputation for inexpensive rustic wines, the best bodegas have shown that by using modern wine-making techniques, La Mancha can also produce very fine wines.
