The vineyards of Bullas are spread out over a fairly large area, mainly in the river valleys, but there are also terraced vineyards in the encircling hills. The height of these vineyards varies from 1,640 feet (500 metres) to slightly higher than 2,296 feet (700 metres). They are sited on either sandy or alluvial soils. Despite the short distance to the Mediterranean, the climate in Bullas is more continental than maritime with very hot summers and cold winters. The grapes here are the blue Monastrell and Tempranillo with white Airén and Macabeo.

Bullas wine regionBullas mainly produces white and rosé Spanish wines yet it is the red which is of greatest interest. Most of the reds are sold as vinos jovenes but this is most certainly no light wine, rather a very fruity, full- bodied wine with a good balance between acidity, alcohol, and fruit. Drink this very pleasant wine with lightly-flavoured meat dishes or poultry. Drinking temperature for this Spanish wine is 53.6-57.2°F (12-14°C). The better Spanish wines are cask aged in wood and the initial results from these are exceptionally promising. This new DO needs to be followed closely for the future.
