Alicante

Spain

Alicante, on the south coast of the Iberian Peninsula has been making wine for hundreds of years, and a history of viticulture in the region is so rich it is said that in 1715 the only thing Louis XIV of France would consume on his deathbed was Alicante wine. Coastal Alicante is also a popular holiday destination, which is due to the hot, dry climate. Average rainfall in Alicante is around 30mm per month, meaning that vineyards are still well watered. Because of this, the climate is ideal for viticulture, and the region produces some excellent wines.
