Learn more about our wines
The wines of Alicante are different from those grown in other Spanish provinces because they are produced with other types of grapes. Muscat of Alexandria, Monastrell, and Grenache are mainly used, although other varieties are also used. The sun that we have throughout the year and the Mediterranean air give our grapes a distinctive flavour.
Among the types of wines produced in Alicante are whites, reds and rosés. There are also sparkling wines, sweet wines, liquor, and the famous Fondillón which is a type of Alicante wine unique in the world.
