Valencia: back to the future

Situated along the eastern Mediterranean coast, many wine producers in the region have swiftly begun focusing on quality and are working hard to bring back the splendour and recognition the regions wines used to be known for, based on the distinctive character of its native, traditional grapes.

During the 15th century, Valencia enjoyed prosperity due in large part to its very important maritime port. The region was famous for producing very high-quality wines. Those coming from the Alicante area were particularly prized. But then, with America’s exploration, the economic boom shifted to the Atlantic coast, and the region's economic boom slowly declined.

During the phylloxera crisis, (which hit Spain later than the rest of Europe) Valencia began supplying wine to France and other European wine regions to help fill their wine shortage. When the region was finally overrun by the louse, in 1907, vineyards were replanted with native grapes (Bobal, Monastrell and Tempranillo) but for the most part the region focussed on the production of large-scale bulk wine.

Winds of change started to blow through the region with funds coming from the EU in the 1990s, which brought investments and modernization to wineries. From there and in the last few decades, wines from Valencia began showing the world a new and impressive identity, based on the versatility and distinctive character of both the Bobal and Monastrell grapes.

Today’s wine market isn’t fair & just. Not just for the winemakers. Not just for you.
