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. 

Hoy publicamos en Guía Peñín 2022 online las valoraciones de más de 240 vinos de las zonas productoras de Mancha (188 vinos) y Valdepeñas (55 vinos), dos zonas de gran relevancia en la producción del vino, Mancha por su condición de gran viñedo del Mundo y Valdepeñas por su pasado histórico como suministrador de vinos a la capital de España.

By now, we believe that no true winelover would question the fact that the wines of El Marco de Jerez are among the best wines in Spain. Proof of this can be found in the evaluations obtained by these wines in the recently launched online Peñín Guide 2022 and in the impressions of the tasting team, which you can read in two articles.  However, today we will address the most hedonistic aspect of these wines, that is, the best way to preserve, serve and consume them to enjoy their organoleptic qualities to the fullest.
