Producer: Paniza Bodegas
The Paniza winery is to be found in Valencia in the Cariñena D.O. half way between Madrid and Barcelona. Here in the foothills of the Sistema Ibérico mountains the climate is continental/Mediterranean giving hot days, often over 30⁰C, and cool nights ideal for wine grape production.

The area is also very dry with most rain falling in the winter months, and very sunny meaning the growing of grapes is relatively easy with little threat of rot or diseases in the vineyards. The winery has over 2500 hectares of vines some situated at an altitude of 850 metres, which helps mitigate the effects of the hot summer sun. Their winery has recently been modernised and now handles 15,000 tonnes of grapes over the 2 month harvest period. All wine making is strictly temperature controlled in the new facilities.
