Almansa

Spain - Almansa

Almansa, known for its red wines, located in the southeast of the province of Albacete (Castile-La Mancha, Spain), in the transition zone between the high central plateau (La Mancha) and the Mediterranean Sea.

The geographical area covered by the DO Almansa is a plateau that touches the borders in the east, across the so-called Almansa corridor, to the old Kingdom of Valencia. This area has marked the transition from the lands of Levant to the province of Castile for centuries.

The wine production area of the D.O. Almansa includes lands and plots located in eight municipalities, with more than 7,000 acres of vineyards. There is a great difference in altitude, reaching from 400m above sea level in the town of Fuente La Higuera, up to 700m in Almansa.
