Created as a DO in 1966, Jumilla has undergone a revolution in the past few decades. The new generation of wines from forward thinking wineries have caused the region to explode in popularity. Jumilla itself is situated in Southeast Spain between La Mancha and the Mediterranean Sea, creating a good grape growing climate.
Monastrell, known as Mourvedre in France, is the main varietal in Jumilla, taking up over 80% of the vineyard land. Monastrell shines in the warm, dry weather and rocky soils of the region. The red wines from Jumilla are full-bodied wines with flavors of black fruits and plums.
