The Wine

A blend of 5 grapes: Garnacha Blanca, a rustic variety that has adapted very well to warm areas. It’s very resistant to drought, with high acidity. Garnacha Gris is a variety that adapts perfectly to this land, sun & climate, with a pink color & thick skin.

Chardonnay, is quite resistant & adaptable to diverse soils, very grateful & it adapts to different climates and its expression will depend on the type of terroir. Viognier adapts very well to hot climates, & it’s very aromatic. Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains, is another variety of which Altolandon have old vines of  in Landete, also very aromatic and with very small berries.

The name for this wine range came with a play of words really. In Spain when you don’t see a friend for a long time they always say, “I have thousand things to tell you”. It’s a phrase that is used a lot so no better way to share these thousand things rather than over a bottle from this wine! Also the altitude of the vineyard is incidentally just over one thousand meters above sea level! 

Manchuela DO

Manchuela DO is a wine designation in Spain, in between the provinces of Valencia, Cuenca and Teruel, in the autonomous community of Castilla-La Mancha. This region is known for producing wines, particularly reds, from grapes like Bobal, Tempranillo, and Garnacha. The climate in Manchuela tends to be continental, with hot summers and cold winters, which can influence the characteristics of the wines produced there. The designation of origin helps to regulate the production and quality standards of wines from this area.

Climate Conditions

The high altitude of 1100 meters above sea level of the Altolandon vineyards have the ideal conditions for high quality production, giving the wines unique and special characteristics in the world. The wine is born from the grape, but the altitude at which it is grown and the terroir from which it comes are fundamental to the final result.

The higher the altitude, the more and better the solar radiation and thus the greater the thermal amplitude. The higher the altitude, the more tannins. The altitude provides a refreshing effect that increases the acidity indexes thanks to the thermal amplitude which results in a higher accumulation of aromas and flavours.

These climatic conditions mean that during the last months of the gestation period, the grapes ripen slowly and over a long period of time. This results in smaller berries with a higher proportion of skin than pulp, which is essential for red wines, as the tannins are found in the skin.

The wines from these grapes offer great variety of colour, breadth and depth of aromas and great complexity on the palate. They are also much more suitable for ageing in barrels, because the higher the acidity and proportion of tannins, the greater the possibility of obtaining wines for ageing.


Grapes arrive at the winery with total respect for the fruit, without breakage & without exposing them to the sun or high temperatures immediately after being harvested from the vineyards surrounding the winery. Selection of bunches is carried out & only healthy & ripe fruit enters the fermentation tanks.

Contact with the skins for a couple of days, followed by a spontaneous alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks of 6000 liters. No commercial  yeast is used. All varieties ferment together, creating a co fermentation followed by a soft pressing without malolactic fermentation. Stabilization and clarification is also natural, the Wines rest in tanks during the coldest months of the year, where natural decantation takes place.

Aromas & Taste

Dark yellow, almost golden in colour, with aromas of ripe citrus & white stone fruits. Floral tones of pink, with rich
fruit on the palate. It’s a wine with originality and personality that does not leave you indifferent, & without a doubt, unique in the market because of its complex blend surrounded by a very good acidity.

Ideal as an aperitif, between meals, or to go with light meals. Very suitable with rice dishes, smoked dishes and
cheeses of great character, a perfect wine to share and enjoy.
Certified Organic & Vegan.
