La Mancha highlights with Bodegas Yuntero
Bodegas Yuntero will be showing its latest range of wines that come from one of the most influential co-operatives in Spain’s La Mancha, the largest wine producing region in the world.
Its main selection of wines have received over a 100 international awards between them and include the Epilogue range, Yuntero Selection, Mundo de Yuntero and Poética.
The Cooperativa Jesús del Perdón-Bodegas Yuntero, located in Castilla-La-Mancha, was founded in 1954 and originally made up of 102 small, family grape growers who decided to join forces to develop and market their own wines. Bodegas Yuntero has now grown to include 850 growers, covering 9,000 ha, and all its wines have La Mancha Denomination of Origin.
The region is known for its dry weather and extreme temperatures, with lots of hours of sunshine. It is has predominantly clay soils suitable for growing a whole range of white and red grapes, both the main international varieties and some native to the region. The most planted grapes are Airén and Cencibel.
Bodegas Yuntero was the first producer in Castilla-La-Mancha to be certified for organic winemaking in 1992. The Mundo de Yuntero label is both an organic wine, that comes in both white and red, and has also been certified for vegans by the “European Vegetarian Union”.
