Mondéjar DO

Mondéjar, upgraded in 1997 from Vinos de la Tierra, is situated in the province of Guadalajara and covers an area of 500 hectares.

The vineyards are spread over low, hilly country north-east of Madrid, but most are clustered around the town after which the DO is named. The DO also incorporates eighteen other towns, one of which is Sacedón. Production is small, but already there are distinctive and interesting DO wines, particularly the reds, which are drunk young.
