Valencia

This DO is located just west of the Mediterranean city of Valencia in eastern Spain’s Levante region. The Valencia DO produces a range of wines from dry whites to rosés and reds. Moscatel de Valencia, a popular sweet wine made from Moscatel grapes, offers incredible value for the high level of quality. The continuous heat of the region limits the variety of grapes that can be successfully grown; however, Valencia is known for producing fresh and enjoyable white wines primarily made from Merseguera. Red and rosé wines are made mainly from Bobal blended with Garnacha, Tempranillo and Monastrell. Often referred to as "jóvenes" (young) wines, they are typically meant to be enjoyed immediately and are not well suited for aging.
