Bodegas Mano a Mano is located in the Province of Ciudad Real, near the city of Alhambra, in the autonomous region of Castilla-La Mancha. Their own vineyards surround the spectacular 'square' bodega, and comprise more or less 330 hectares of old vines, pruned ‘en gobelet’ and planted in a poor subsoil, thus very suited to making high quality wines. Most is Tempranillo, which has adapted fully to the extremely dry climate and lends itself to making intense, bold wines. The soil consists mostly of sand topped with pebble, chalk and clay. Besides Tempranillo, they also work with - to a lesser degree and above all experimentally - Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Graciano and most surprisingly, Touriga Nacional.
At Mano a Mano the wines are made by the oenologist Asunción Yébenes, who was literally raised with wine: her grandparents were winemakers and she did not hesitate long before devoting her career to making good wine. She has worked for Mano a Mano since 2008 and has succeeded in making some of the most remarkable wines of the region.
