Uclés Do
Ucles is a DO wine region within the Castilla-La Mancha territory in north central Spain, east of Madrid. This is a continental climate, with good amounts of rainfall, compared to other local areas. Vineyards are sited from 1500 to more than 3000 feet above sea level.

Tempranillo, known locally as Cencibel, is the leading variety here; many vineyards are grown in the alberello (bush vine) style. Other red grapes include Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Only red wines made from vines that are at least six years old may have the designation “DO Ucles” on the label. Pair these wines with a range of foods, from beef tapas to grilled meats and wild game.

White wines are produced from Verdejo, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Moscatel. Pair these wines with shellfish. (Wine/Appellations)
