Plan your trip to Castilla-La Mancha based around its wines

Castilla-La Mancha

There are a whole host of wine tourism experiences waiting for you in Castilla-La Mancha, the region of Spain with the most vineyards in the world. You´ll find countless acres of vineyards that cover kilometres of land, creating an unforgettable image. 

Food and wine tourism

Like the universally-known Miguel de Cervantes, famous novelist of Spanish literature, poet and playwright, you will be able to explore landscapes of windmills and vineyards just as the protagonist of his well-known work The Ingenious Hidalgo Don Quixote de la Mancha did.As well as its wines, you won´t be able to resist trying Manchegan gastronomy and its local cuisine, which will delight you with its wonderful flavours such as salpicón (salad medley), migas (fried breadcrumbs), duelos y quebrantos (scrambled eggs with chorizo) and the famous Manchego cheese, ideal accompaniment to a glass of young and fruity red wine. 

Castilla-La Mancha, much more than wine

Plan all the activities and wine tourism experiences you can enjoy in Castilla-La Mancha based on the dates you travel and with whom. You can combine your trip with other plans related to culture or nature with friends, a partner or family, at any time of the year. If you are travelling with children, you can learn about the culture of wine with the whole family by smelling and tasting the different varieties of grapes, or by taking walks on footpaths, or even by bike, enjoying more sensory experiences during the harvest season.

With your partner

A plan for couples will be perfect for wine lovers, since you will find wine tourism activities ranging from visits to wineries, wine tastings, as well as the best pairing with the region´s delicious gastronomy. If you're travelling with friends, find the designated dates for traditional events in each municipality related to wine or traditional La Mancha cuisine, such as the Harvest Festival, a celebration where the grapes are pressed to offer the first mosto (freshly crushed grape juice) to the Virgen de las Viñas. (Virgin of the Vines).
