Méntrida Wine Region Guide

Unveil the Essence of Méntrida: A Journey Through the Flavors and Traditions of Exceptional Wines


Last updated: January 4, 2024


It is hard to believe that the arid, sunlit plains of Castilla-La Mancha could support a thriving wine industry. Yet La Mancha contains the world’s largest expanse of vines – more than all of Australia’s vineyards put together! Thanks to the extensive irrigation systems of the region, this high plateau south of Madrid produces incredible volumes of red and white wine. However, not all bodegas are interested in quality. Nevertheless, a growing firmament of winemakers in Méntrida have committed to the quality crusade, making single-site blends that excite critics and lure buyers. Thus far, the evidence suggests that Garnacha Tinta (Grenache) is the DO’s star grape. A growing rival to the best of Priorat and Rioja Oriental is on the cards.
