Cebreros: Regional Profile

Formally recognised as a DOP just last year, this Spanish region may be little known, but its winning combination of old-vine Garnacha, granitic soils and a mountain climate, together with some dynamic winemaking, are putting it firmly on the map. Sarah Jane Evans MW finds out more and recommends exciting wines to try

Ever since I visited the region, I’ve been talking animatedly about Cebreros. But I’m met with blank responses. No one has heard of it. Yet when I say ‘Gredos’ or ‘Sierra de Gredos’, then lovers of new-wave Spanish wines are all ears. For Cebreros is the newest denomination within Gredos, which is itself hallowed territory for fine, old bush-vine Garnacha.
