The New Wines of Don Quixote's La Mancha Spain Gourmetour

By Gerry Dawes
Spaingourmetour (Sept.-Dec. 2004)

Being a Don Quixote-like figure myself-one who has peripatetically criss-crossed Spain for some thirty years-I have an affinity for the Man of La Mancha, but until I set out in January of both 2003 and 2004 to investigate the buzz about Castilla-La Mancha's emerging quality wine movement, I had never had the opportunity to explore the region in depth. During my eye-opening trips through La Mancha, I visited more than forty wineries scattered across the core of this vast five-province region (Cuenca, Toledo, Ciudad Real, Albacete, and Guadalajara). I tasted some surprisingly good wines in revitalized existing wineries and saw several impressive new bodegas and vineyards that showed great promise.
