Monastrell Jumilla Wine

Monastrell is known as the signature grape of Jumilla.

Monastrell grapes are small in size and have thick skin. Jumilla produces other red grapes, including Garnacha and Tempranillo, and grows white grapes such as Malvasia, Airen Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc.

Jumilla is considered to be one of Spain’s oldest designated winegrowing places. When we talk about the history of wine production, it takes you back to the period of Phoenicians. However, there is no archaeological evidence proving that wine production dates back to 3000 BCE, that included gold earrings with the picture of grapes and grape seed fossils.

Why Is Jumilla Famous for Wines?

Due to its warm climates, Jumilla is best known for producing red wines. Jumilla comprises the soils, climate, landscape, and grape varieties to make the best red wines. Viticultural strategies also play an essential role. In order to produce the best wine, the balance of raw materials particularly when they come in cellars and the aging process, are crucial. Jumilla wines are mostly stored in barriques for aging, whereas the judicious aging method has a large process including foudres, and improves those precious balances.
