Description

Cebreros is a region in central Spain to the west of Madrid which was awarded PDO status in 2019. It is particularly associated with red wines from old vine Garnacha.

 

Albillo Real is the principal white grape variety here. Like its red counterpart it can produce dense wines with good structure that suit barrel maturation.

 

In Spain, Garnacha is the second most-planted red-wine grape variety, surpassed only by its modern blending partner Tempranillo. It is grown in almost every area of Spain, but most notably in the north and east – it is the key constituent in the prestigious wines of Priorat.

 

The arrival of the grapevine pest phylloxera to the Iberian Peninsula in the 19th Century brought unexpected benefits to Garnacha. The native vines were devastated (Rioja was particularly badly affected) it was robust Garnacha that replenished the vineyards and helped to re-energize the wine industry.

 

In the 1980s and 1990s, Grenache's status was reduced, but it survived efforts to eradicate it, returning to international favor in the 21st Century. Emerging wine-producing nations such as China, Mexico and Israel are now cultivating the grape variety.
