Tomelloso, located in the heart of the land of Quixote, is a modern and active city, fully integrated within the changing world of today and able to face the challenges posed by present-day society. Also, aware of its past and its culture, it conserves all of the values and traditions it has received from its history and it naturally stands out as a city of La Mancha.

A very important wine production centre, Tomelloso is the headquarters of the Vineyard and Wine Institute of Castille La Mancha and of the ‘Melon of La Mancha’ specific Designation of Origin.

The subsoil of Tomelloso has around 4,000 caves, which were dug out due to the need of storing large amounts of wine.
