About This Wine:
Its wines have been exhibiting exceptional quality since the early 1990s, when careful harvesting and investment in new equipment improved the products in the bottles. The result is a new mix of elegant wines, with the Monastrell grape leading the way.
Monastrell, also known as Mourvedre, is native to Spain, and that country’s new generation of young winemakers has embraced it. Before the turn of the century, it was rare to see a Jumilla Monastrell in the United States; today, it has become much more common.
Jumilla has become so popular that a “wine route” has been created for visitors. In addition to wineries, it features a wine museum, an archeological museum and an ethnographic museum. Each August a week-long festival celebrates the arrival of the grape harvest, and offers guests a taste of great wines like the 2017 El Persa Monastrell.
