Alicante

Alicante is situated on Spain's southern coast on the Mediterranean. The traditional wines from the area are Moscatel for the whites and Monstrell for the reds. It's a warm region and benefits from many hours of sunlight while also having cool nights and warm MEditerranean winds that leaves traces of their salty air behind in the beautiful savory quality of the wines from this area. While difficult to find, the region has been highly recognized throughout history for its dessert Fondillon made from late harvest and often sun dried Monastrell which remain to be highly coveted among experts.
