Valencia's Wine Renaissance: Unveiling Hidden Gems Beyond the Beaches


Last updated: January 4, 2024


Spain’s third largest city, Valencia, is situated right on the Mediterranean. It is known for its balmy climate, long white beaches, a gastronomic tradition of Paella, and exuberant nightlife. Indeed, the star attractions of this corner of eastern Spain have been well documented, much more so than the often delicious and excellent value wines located inland from the city itself. And while the area’s reputation was arguably built on cheap and cheerful table wines and sweet fortified Moscatel, the inquisitive wine lover is waiting to discover much more.

Yet this shift into quality winemaking is a relatively new development. The 20th century did Valencia’s reputation no favors: an abundance of heat and sunshine, combined with generous levels of irrigation, is a recipe for inflated bunches and mediocre wine. But, as the global market for plonk continues to diminish, Valencia is focusing on exporting premium wine styles – of all three colors – for a discerning audience. Thankfully, the message is starting to hit home.
