A sensational find - the wines were sourced from Finca Tempranal on our last visit to Castilla La Mancha. Not only are they affordable for us and our customers but more importantly, the white is completely delicious and totally quaffable. This area is known for producing Airen and this is a great example. A delicious summer wine and fabulous value for money.

About

La Mancha is the largest delimited wine region not only in Spain, but in the whole of Europe. Occupying almost one half of the large Castilla-La Mancha region, the La Mancha viticultural area covers a vast expanse of the central Iberian plateau. Not only one of Spain's largest wine regions, it is also one of the oldest. Winemaking is thought to have originated here in Roman times, and was certainly widespread during medieval times. Under Moorish rule between the 8th and 15th centuries, it was known as al-mansha, meaning "parched earth" – a fitting description for the arid countryside here. The most successful grape varieties in La Mancha are those hardy enough to withstand the harsh conditions. Airen is a local favorite.
