This ancient winemaking area has only recently come to the attention of the rest of the world as a leading maker of white wine, historically the region produced mostly a fortified, oxidised wine not unlike sherry. The vineyards that lie on a high northern plateau are about 730m above sea level, which is a gently rolling landscape, that experiences long hot summer days and cool nights, ideal for fresh white wines.

Extensive replanting of the area’s native grapes, in particular Verdejo, has led to a new generation of fresh, young, very fruity wines that are now beginning to be aged.
