Viticulture around Almansa has developed continuously since the sixteenth century. This wine region, located about 700 m above sea level, is the easternmost of Castilla-La Mancha.
D.O. Almansa, was founded in 1966. At that time there were quite a number of wineries that for various reasons were disappearing, leaving the wine growing area in the hands of a few wineries and cooperatives.
During the recent years many new vineyards and wineries have been established, creating a resurgence of high quality wines from this privileged area.
Currently wines are made with varieties of national and indigenous grapes being bottled and exported to more than 20 countries, all the way to Japan and the United States.
