WHERE WE ARE
Jumilla and all it has to offer
WHERE RUGGED BEAUTY MERGES WITH ENCHANTING VINEYARDS
Vine-clad slopes in an arid but beautiful landscape
A 3 hour-drive south from Madrid and less than one hour by car from Alicante airport, the Jumilla DOP (Protected Designation of Origin) stretches from the extreme south-east of the province of Albacete down through Murcia as far as the border with Alicante province.
From north to south, it passes through the villages of Montealegre del Castillo, Fuente-Alamo, Ontur, Hellín, Albatana and Tobarra before entering the northern part of Murcia province, which includes the municipality of Jumilla (from which the appellation takes its name) and the enchanting Carche Valley where several leading Jumilla wine estates are located.
The Jumilla Region and its Wineries
A unique aspect of Jumilla’s winemaking tapestry is the ownership of some of its finest terroirs by cooperative members or local vine-growers – a well-kept secret contributing to the remarkable value for money offered by Jumilla’s wines.
Currently, the region’s 42 wineries encompass a spectrum of small family enterprises, larger family-owned concerns, and a couple of prominent corporate entities, complemented by the presence of six cooperatives. In essence, Jumilla unfolds as a canvas where tradition, innovation, and diverse ownership converge to define the character of its winemaking landscape.
