Mentioned in this article


  • Utiel-Requena; A wine featured heavily in your pages, specialises in wine made from the BOBAL grape, unique to the area yet the 3rd most planted grape in Spain. Strange that this article makes no mention of Bobal, it's not even listed in the grapes that make up the wine!
