VINEYARDS WITH HISTORY

Located in the center of Spain, at a maximum distance of 9 miles from the winery, our vineyards rough out a genuine and characteristic landscape typical from La Mancha.

With an average altitude of 2400 feet above sea level, sheltered by the banks of the Gigüela River and influenced by an extreme continental Mediterranean climate with warm summers and cold winters, a natural enclave of 10,625 acres of vineyard is located, property of Bodegas Latúe, one of the largest ecological wineries in Europe.

The unique conditions for the cultivation of the grape, provided by a scarce rain and a stony brown-copper soil on limestone, provide to Bodegas Latúe’s wines an exceptional quality and an incomparable personality.

The founding spirit of Bodegas Latúe remains latent. Entrepreneurship, ecology, sustainability, social responsibility, quality, and innovation define the personality of Bodegas Latúe, in an environment where equal opportunities and social maintenance of people in the rural area are always present.

These values, transferred to our wines and high-quality musts, are recognized by associates, clients, institutions, and the society, identifying Bodegas Latúe as a socially responsible, sustainable, and ecological company.
