Méntrida, an old but little known winemaking area, lies in the northwest of the province of Toledo. Nowadays, it is beginning to show its potential.
Local producers have acquired stainless steel equipment to complement the grapes, soil and climate, and produce good modern wines.
In consequence, after a significant drop in sales during the 1980s, Méntrida DO is enjoying a renaissance similar to those occurring in Madrid and La Mancha DOs - although it has come more slowly here, due to less easily available capital for investment.

The majority of the DO production is in red wines, as 80% of the vineyard surface area is planted with the Garnacha red-wine grape.
