DO area on the Mediterranean coast Costa Blanca (white coast) in the Spanish region Valenciana. About 75 kilometres northeast of Alicante, on the peninsula of Dénia, is the later affiliated subzone La Marina Alta, where mainly sweet wines are produced. The vineyards of the Alicante Clásico subzone are located to a lesser extent around the port city of Alicante, but four-fifths of them are inland at an altitude of 500 to 650 metres above sea level. The vineyards cover about 14,500 hectares on mostly dark limestone soils with a low percentage of clay. The climate, mild in summer and winter, is humid and Mediterranean near the coast and continental inland. Humidity is high all year round.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
