This new denomination of Uclés is located in the western parts of the province of Cuenca, as well as in some municipalities of the province of Toledo with the city of Uclès as its center.
Originally, this wine region was part of Spain's largest wine region LA MANCHA with the denomination "La Mancha DO", which was known primarily as a supplier of cheap wine. Although here, of course, very high quality wines were produced, they could never reach the image of other winegrowing regions.
This was the reason for the spin-off and the reestablishment of the designation of origin Uclés DO, in which also due to the climatic and geographical conditions produce particularly good wines. The climate with continental and Mediterranean influences, as well as with vineyards up to 900 m above sea level, here are ideal conditions for viticulture
