Varieties
Of the denomination of origin Alicante

The combination of very special soils, mild weather conditions and relative humidity levels results in the Alicante landscape being highly suitable for growing vineyards

In fact, historical records show the many hectares given over to vineyards and the vast range of varieties grown across all the regions, but most notably in the countryside around the city of Alicante.

 

The most widely grown and most successful varieties grown in the Alicante PDO are:

The apparently mild Mediterranean climate, however, has a few very unusual features. In this case, the diverse range of weather conditions in Alicante gives rise to many other varieties,  ranging from damp weather and rich soils in the Marina Alta to extreme winter and summer temperatures coupled with scarce rainfall in the Vinalopó (which is serving as a model to study how vines can adapt to climate change and to understand the enormous influence of non-irrigated land on the production of highly expressive wines).
