The aroma of the bobal, the fashionable wine

The Bobal grape, characteristic of the DO Utiel-Requena, has conquered amateurs and experts alike with its opulent wines of red fruit aromas and intense colour. Book a tasting and discover the secrets of the bobal.

The harvest

Tierra Bobal smells like must in September. The harvest starts with the white grapes and ends with the bobal, perfectly adapted to the climate and soil conditions of this land. Celebrate with us the great celebration of the wine harvest!

A sustainable future

The region is one of the territories with more hectares of organic cultivation in the Valencian Community. Craftsmanship is a trend, and you will also find very interesting natural and biodynamic wines. Do you know them?

A landscape shaped by wine

Wine has been part of our identity for more than 2,500 years, as demonstrated by the prehistoric presses. With "Wine in Iberia", promoted by the Bobal Territory Association, we hope to receive recognition from UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

Red, rosé, white, sparkling and more...

Great red wines for the winter. Dry whites and cavas for the summer. Rosés... year round. We also produce excellent sweet wines and even vermouth. A glass for every occasion!

We live in a land that smells of wine. The Phoenicians brought wine to the Iberian peoples, who more than 2,500 years ago excavated wine presses such as La Solana de las Pilillas, the oldest wineries in the Iberian Peninsula. For centuries our houses were built on top of underground wine cellars like the ones you can visit in Utiel and Requena. Our wine is the colour of the land of the plateau, it shapes our landscape and is our way of life. We were a Designation of Origin before most. It is the territory that defines us. The Bobal and the Cabriel are the border and only the land is our flag.

The DOP Utiel-Requena  invites the visitor to learn about our wines, culture and landscapes. Four unique routes propose to travel to the time of the Iberians or the medieval era, to discover our natural parks, to enjoy the gastronomy and the historical legacy of the wine culture.

The Wine Route is made up of more than 50 establishments including wineries, restaurants, accommodations, museums, wine shops, activities and official entities. It is part of the "Wine Routes of Spain" of ACEVIN (Association of Spanish Wine Cities) and the Secretary of State for Tourism.

Not everything under the sun is bobal.

Bobal

70% of the vineyard area in the region is dedicated to the Bobal grape, the native variety, which is perfectly adapted to the short, hot and dry summers of the region. The red wines have a powerful structure and volume, with notes of red fruits, especially cherries, and an intense purple colour in the young wines that changes to brown in the more mature ones. The rosés are balanced, fresh and deep pink.
