More about this Producer
La Mancha is located on a plateau in central Spain and is one of the largest and oldest winemaking regions in the world, starting in Roman times. La Mancha has an extreme continental climate. Summer daytime temperatures regularly exceed 104°F, but drop dramatically as darkness falls. Winters are cold, with sub-zero temperatures and frequent frosts. The finest vineyard areas in La Mancha are those with limestone and chalk content in the sub-soil. These semi-porous stones retain precious moisture and help to even out the vines’ water supply. 3,000 hours of sunshine per year ripen the grapes without difficulty.
Located in the heart of the La Mancha appellation, in the small village of Socuéllamos, Bodegas Cristo de la Vega was founded in 1955 by 25 vine growers. Over the last decade, the winery has invested heavily in high-tech equipment to precisely control every step of the winemaking process from harvest to bottling to ensure quality year vintage after vintage.
