Located in the western part of the Valencia Region, this is the largest and the most homogeneous inland of this area’s three DOs . It is named after two neighbouring towns, Utiel and Requena.
Today it is establishing its own identity, promoting the Bobal grape, and at the same time, producers are learning to take maximum advantage of the excellent growing conditions, particularly well adapted to organic vineyards. In addition, the area has attracted increased investment in new, well-equipped bodegas and replanted varieties. As a result, red wines are now being made up to Gran Reserva level.
