Castilla-La Mancha is a large wine region which lies south and east of the Spanish capital Madrid. Home to the world-heritage listed town of Toledo, the continental climate is hot and dry in summer and dips below freezing in winter, meaning that only grapes suited to harsh conditions do well here. Airen tops the list as the most commonly planted grape in Castilla-La Mancha, however a number of producers have expanded with plantings of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Garnacha, Alicante Bouschet (known as Garnacha Tintorera), Monastrell, Syrah and Bobal. Most of these grapes are used for the production of red blends suited to barrel maturation, although varietal wines are increasingly being produced in Castilla-La Mancha.
