undefined, null

Outshining all other white vine varieties in the world as far as vineyard acreage—though that is also because lack of water forces low density planting—Airén is ultimately one of the more important Spanish wine grapes. Airén vines prefer training into low bushes, which make them resistant to drought. Used traditionally in La Mancha and Valdepeñas for blending with the red variety, Tempranillo, it is becoming more fashionable when vinified as a crisp, youthful, single varietal white.
