DO Jumilla

The Designation of Origin Jumilla has carried on an important wine tradition for centuries. Vines were grown in this area as early as the Hispanic Romanisation. However, it was in the middle of the 19 th century that the filoxera plague hit in broad European areas, mainly in France . This gave the the wine industry in Jumilla a spectacular boost of increased vine growing and a significant rise in must exports to the neighbouring country, which enriched the local agricultural sector.

Over the years, Jumilla has become one of the oldest Designations of Origin in Spain , regulated since 1966. The Oenological Research Center has been in operation since the beginning of the 20 th century (today it is the Regional Farming Laboratory and Experimental Winery), and it currently cooperates with the Control Board.

The Designation of Origin Jumilla is located in the Southeast of Spain, a transition area between the Mediterranean Levante coast and the Castilla La Mancha plateau and an area characterised by wide valleys and plains and surrounded by mountains. Its production is covered by two wide areas: the town of Jumilla , in the province of Murcia , in which the Control Board has its headquarters, and the towns and villages of Montealegre del Castillo, Fuenteálamo, Ontur, Hellín, Albatana and Tobarra in the province of Albacete . There are currently over 30,000 hectares of vineyards registered.
