Description 1 of 1

 

This region within the Castilla y Leon province runs along the Pisuerga river. Wine-making dates back many centuries, having quenched the thirsts of the nobility and religious disciples who lived in the many castles and monasteries that dot the countryside. Cigales was finally awarded D.O. status in 1991. 
 
Cigales has a very hot and dry continental climate. This is a region now mostly known for its rosados of Tinto del Pais (Tempranillo) and Garnacha, with quality red wines made from the same grapes. A small amount of white wine production is produced from Verdejo and Albillo.
