The best wines of Almería

In our province, Almería, we can highlight the incredible Almeria wines that will make you lose your senses. It is not to throw flowers at us but since Roman and Muslim times the wines of Almería were already well known.

But why are Almeria wines so well known? The wines of our land stand out for the characteristics of their grapes raised in extreme climates.

We are going to teleport to the post-war era where the farm fields were abandoned due to migrations. Even so, from the little that was grown, a very rich grape was obtained, perfect for self-sufficiency and local production.

Since 2004, the wines of Almería have been awarded the “Vino de la Tierra” quality mention. In addition, thanks to the popularity of our wines, wine tourism is practiced in our province. The main areas of Almería where wine is produced are: Ribera del Andarax, Tabernas Desert, Laujar-Alpujarra, North Almería, Sierras de las Estancias and Los Filabres. In these areas we can find numerous grape growing fields and wineries in arid and wild landscapes.
