Castilla y León is a protected geographical indication that is used to designate the local wine made with grapes produced in the autonomous community of Castilla y León in Spain. Under this protected indication, the provinces of Ávila, Burgos, León, Palencia, Salamanca, Segovia, Soria, Valladolid and Zamora, in total 317 localities produce red, white and rosé wines.
The most notable characteristic of this area is the continental Mediterranean climate, the low rainfall and the diversity of soils, which roughly coincide with the Duero basin or the northern sub-plateau and the surrounding mountainous areas.
This figure includes the vineyards erected in the Denominations of Origin of Castilla y León, which mention Vino de la Tierra, or producers who have the right to use geographical references.
However, the wines of the Castilla y León region, which already have their own designation of origin, will be excluded from the wines of the land of Castilla y León. For example, (D.O.) Tierras de León, Cigales, D.O. Toro (D.O.), D.O. Ribera del Duero, D.O. Bierzo etc.
