About:

Join us for a casual walk-around tasting of the wines of La Mancha. Located on our mezzanine, with views of Chicago's skyline, sip, snack, and meet some of the winemakers producing the fantastic wines from Castilla -La Mancha, Spain.

About La Mancha:

La Mancha is an ideal area for growing grapes because the yield per hectare is not very high and of premium quality. In addition, the health of their vines is extraordinary due to the long hours of sunshine they receive and their great ripening cycle.

CASTILLA-LA MANCHA REGION

Located in the southern part of the Castillian Plateau, 60 km from Madrid, the cradle of Don Quixote, it is the largest natural region of Spain, and, probably thanks to this great ambassador, the best known internationally. Its territory corresponds to the municipalities that make up the provinces of Albacete, Ciudad Real, Cuenca, Guadalajara and Toledo. Due to its traditional and acknowledged viticulture vocation and a combination of intrinsic and natural characteristics, it is the ideal area for growing grapes, and, consequently, the production of some spectacular wines with distinctive qualities. Despite being a recent political and administrative reality, Castilla-La Mancha and its inhabitants have their roots that go way back in history. Iberians, Romans, Visigoths, Muslims and Christians have lived and left their emphatic mark in this region.

Sponsored by Quixote wines:

The Quixote, the medieval knight-errant that lived his adventures in Castilla-La Mancha region (Spain) between vineyards and wines, is still alive in the minds of locals. During his new adventure, The Quixote will travel through the United States showing the best wines that are produced in his homeland.  Discover Quixote’s wine!
