The large region of Utiel-Requena, in the interior of the Valencia province, is almost exclusively dedicated to the vineyard cultivation. Geographically, it is located in the Central Plateau, and that's why it possesses different and harsher weather patterns, that fosters vineyard growing. Vine-growing is a daily part of its inhabitants, with more than 100 cellars devoted to proven quality wines.
It is believed that Utiel-Requena is the only Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) that has been elaborating wines non-stop in the last 2,500 years. The discovery of grape pips, as well as several elements and structures, prove that Iberians were already making wine on the region since around the 7th Century BC. The Protected Designation of Origin qualification was awarded in 1932.
