Yecla, the cradle of the Monastrell grape

Yecla is a picturesque town located in the fertile region of Murcia, in southern Spain. A place that has captured the hearts of wine lovers around the world for being the cradle of the Monastrell grape, a variety increasingly popular for the nuances it offers to the wines in which it participates. 

With a vibrant and hospitable population, Yecla has become an unmissable wine destination for connoisseurs and wine lovers. As a result, more and more people are visiting the town, eager to immerse themselves in the history and tradition surrounding this celebrated wine variety.


Monastrell grapes and Yecla

The Mediterranean climate of the Yecla area, with mild winters and warm summers, has created a favorable environment for the cultivation of the Monastrell grape. This grape variety has adapted perfectly to the region’s soils, composed mainly of limestone and clay. These distinctive characteristics of the soil, together with the care and expert knowledge of the local winegrowers, have led to the development of grapes of exceptional quality. This has led to the Monastrell variety becoming the true queen of grapes in this region.

This, however, is not new. The tradition of growing Monastrell grapes in Yecla dates back to ancient times, when the Iberians already cultivated these vines in the area. A custom that has been maintained over the centuries, creating a deeply rooted wine culture in Yecla. A tradition that has passed from generation to generation, and which has meant that, today, local winegrowers honor these centuries-old traditions while embracing innovation and modernity in the winemaking process.
