DO Almansa


DO ALMANSA is a young and not very big DO, which has always drawn Gran Anyada’s attention for its varieties, climate and edaphology. Its geographical location, known as ‘’Hoya de Almansa’’ (Almansa’s wide valley), has an altitude between 700 and 1100 metres, in pretty much flat land, not very undulating, and with a dry continental climate, although milder than in the interior area of La Mancha. These conditions and mostly-grown non-traditional varieties have allowed Marià Bigordà, father and son, to work together with their good friend and winemaker Adolfo Cano. We have been able to present wines which surprise because of their aromatic, fresh and very fruity richness, as well as being voluminous and nice in the mouth.

Serve from 16,5-17ºC

Decant the wine 2 hours before serving it. With the bottle at an angle pour the wine trying to keep the flow slow and steady, then spin it counter-clockwise a couple of times and let it sit until it is ready to drink.


  • Wines are always stored horizontally in cool places where temperatures don’t go above 18ºC.

  • It is important to open the bottles or decant them before consumption depending on the type of wine.

  • The colour, its intensity and hue, can define the features and characteristics of the wine.
