The Valencia wine region is located near the east coast of Spain, within the autonomous Valencian Community. Although the parts of the region closest to the coast have a Mediterranean climate, the majority of the vineyards of Valencia are in sections with a continental climate, characterised by hot and dry conditions in the summer, and much colder winters. It is also divided into four sub-zones: Valentino, Moscatel, Alto Turia and Clariano.

Valencia is perhaps best-known for its white wine production, with the Merseguera grape being the most abundantly grown in the region. Meanwhile, other white wine grape varieties include Malvasía, Chardonnay and Pedro Ximénez. Nevertheless, red wine is also produced in substantial quantities, with some of the most popular red grape varieties including Monastrell, Grenache, Alicante Bouschet and Cabernet Sauvignon.
