Utiel-Requena is a wine region within the Valencia province in Spain. Wines have been produced here continuously since the 7th century BC, starting with the Iberians, with continuing evolution through the Romans. Wine production managed to survive through two conditions which otherwise halted production in most of Europe: It was tolerated throughout the Moorish occupation, despite Muslim law forbidding alcohol consumption and production. And it survived Phylloxera in the late 1800s because most of the wines are produced from the Bobal grape, which is largely resistant to the pesky mites. This was a particular boom to the area during this crisis. Wines were exported through the port of Valencia to the rest of Europe, which was otherwise lacking in a source for local wine for many years until the American-hybrid grafting cure was discovered. A further boost came in the way of railroad construction connecting Utiel with the rest of Valencia.
