The designation of origin Jumilla is located in the Southeast of Spain, and it covers a wide district in the North of the region of Murcia and part of the Southeast of the province of Albacete . It is a rough region where the vineyards spread across a table-land surrounded by mountains.


The climate of the area is continental, influenced by its proximity to the Mediterranean on the east side and La Mancha plateau on the west side. It is a sunny and dry climate, with some 3,000 hours of sun a year and scant rains – some 300 litres per square metre a year.


The soils are dark, lime bearing and sometimes with a hard lime crust. In general, they are permeable and have good moisture retaining properties, which allows the vines to survive during periods of prolonged drought.
