Located in Socuéllamos, Ciudad Real province, and in the heart of La Mancha, our home town, Bodegas Cristo de la Vega, was born thanks to the illusion of 25 farmers who in 1955 met in order to give legal character to the project that since Many years before they already had in common: the production of their crops in a cooperative regime. Over the years, Bodegas Cristo de la Vega grew and elaborated increasingly sophisticated wines, the result of the illusion and the work of an entire town, where today we continue to preserve our traditions and our passion for what we know best to do.

La Mancha, a large area of land that has a flat land, without great heights and with a beautiful reddish earth, fruit of sediments from the Miocene of limestone structure. Its temperatures are extreme due to its continental climate, ranging between -15º in cold winter and 45º in hot summer. Dryness is another of its most pronounced characteristics, since due to its micro-climate it prevents the entry of humid winds, presenting low rainfall (300 to 400 mm per year), for this reason La Mancha is fundamentally a dry farming place. On the other hand, our land enjoys 3,000 hours of sunshine a year to brown.
Viticulture is sustainable.
Rigorous monitoring in the vineyard which end with the harvest in its optimal point of maturation. The varietal wines are being recieved and processed separately.

The filtering, blending, stabilization and bottling process start inmediately after concluding the fermetation.

Fresh and wide entry on the palate with a good attack, sharing a fruity taste of high persistence and a slight tannic finish. Balanced acidity, pleasant and intense aftertaste.&nbsp;
Perfect to share with white meats, rice and soft cheeses.
