Wine Review Report:

Last reviewed: 20 July, 2010

The vineyards at 600 to 1,000 meters above sea level cover about 40,000 hectares. 32,000 of these alone are occupied by the red variety Bobal, which is traditionally grown in bush form. Most of them are over 50 and even up to 100 years old. Accordingly, the yields are very low, resulting in red wines rich in tannins and extracts. Other red varieties are Tempranillo with...

The first flowering occurred in 200 BC, because the Romans loved the wine from Baetica (Andalusia). Development was halted by the Moorish invasion in 711. For religious reasons, the Muslims cleared large parts of the vineyards or only allowed the production of sultanas. They brought with them the art of distillation, which was not used for alcoholic beverages, however, but for essential oils, as...
