The land of windmills and Don Quixote happens to be one of the largest wine-making regions in all of Europe, possibly the world, with vineyards taking up over 192,000 hectars of land. It occupies a massive expanse of central Iberia, and touches on Comunidad Valenciana and Murcia in the east, Extremadura in the west and Andalucia (Andalusia) in the south, as well as the areas around Madrid. The region is mostly flat with big extremes in temperatures that are flaming hot and dry in the summer and bitter cold in winter. 
 
The white grape Airen is the most widely planted and makes a light, crispy refreshing dry wine. Second behind that, but in far fewer plantings is Macabeo. Reds are produced mainly from Cencibel (Tempranillo), with blends of Garnacha, Syrah Cabernet Sauvignon and/or Merlot. These wines are becoming increasingly more artisanal and have begun to make quite a name for the region.

  • Viento Aliseo Viognier 2012

    Snoothrank:

    This modest pick - an organic Viognier wine from La Mancha -stands tall and correct without a label depicting windmills; the sweet honeysuckle, peach and ginger nose is very Mediterranean and inviting; on the palate the pale straw liquid is smooth and balanced with just a hint of orange peel. Great value! 87 points. Read More

    Fairly sweet and smoky, with an unexpected tannin finish. Flavors of grape juice, lemon, plum, and prune. Good. Read More

  • Pallas Tempranillo 2013

    Snoothrank:

    All acid...could not cut through that for flavor, even after two days in the fridge. This was one of the not so hot Spanish wines I remembered. I cannot believe Ordonez put his name on it. Read More

  • Venta Morales Tempranillo 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Slightly fruity nose. Dry and smokey on the front. A smooth but tart cherry flavor hits the sides of your tongue, but finishes with chocolate and bitters. Great value for the price. Haven't paired it with any foods yet, suspect it wouldn't stand up to anything heavy or spicy. Read More
