Today Guía Peñin has just published reviews of more than 33 wines from the Ribera del Guadiana Denomination of Origin and 26 more tastings of Vinos de la Tierra de Extremadura (IGP).

La Mancha and Valdepeñas, the importance of straightforward, popular wine
Today we publish in Guía Peñín 2022 the ratings of more than 240 wines from the producing areas of Mancha (188 wines) and Valdepeñas (55 wines), two areas of great importance in wine production, Mancha for its status as a great vineyard of the World and Valdepeñas for its historical past as a supplier of wines to the capital of Spain. A past that, on the other hand, seems to remain what it was, the past, as Valdepeñas is currently engaged in an internal battle that is undermining the very foundations of the appellation.
