The wines of Alicante

Located in the Autonomous Community of Valencia, down Spain's Mediterranean east coast, D.O. Alicante produces elegant warm country wines, predominantly dry reds from Monastrell and sweet whites from Moscatel. Vines were introduced to the area by the Phoenicians around 1000BC, and a further influx of vines and wine culture came with the Romans. The region has long benefitted from the manifold Phonecian- Roman gifts of wheat, oil, wine and amphorae.
