Yecla
Yecla may be one of Spain's smallest wine regions but it's dedication to heritage and tradition rivals some of the best. Established in 1975, the Yecla DO surrounds the city that shares its name and has survived because of this fierce dedication to its roots.



Yecla lies in the southeastern province of Murcia. The DO is surrounded by other Spanish wine regions, specifically Jumilla, and Almansa. The city and vineyards of Yecla are ringed by a series of low mountain ranges which help to give the region its particular microclimate which is important in the production of their wines.



Historically, the area has been known to be home to wine growers and cellars for over a thousand years. Its believed ancient Phoenicians brought wine grapes to Yecla, and archaeologists have discovered the ruins of a first-century wine cellar near Fuente del Pinar. After Roman rule ended, wine production in Yecla continued, flourishing during the Moorish occupation. Today, while one of the smaller wine regions in Spain, advocates such as the Castaño family, owners of Bodegas Castaño, have worked tirelessly to propel the Yecla DO onto the international stage. In fact, about 85 percent of Yecla's wines are exported. Yecla is no longer one of a collection of unknown wine regions; instead, Yecla's wines are known for their quality and value.
