VT CAMPO DE CARTAGENA
The arid Mediterranean climate is typical of this region bathed in sunshine, with few and irregular rainfall and high temperatures in summer are smoothed in the rest of the year. The Campo de Cartagena is used almost exclusively for agriculture, emphasizing vegetables, citrus and cotton.
The production of the wines from this area has been reduced to the activity of several private wineries, although some brands have managed to elaborate wines that seek to strengthen. There are red, pink, white and natural fresh high quality.
This GI was regulated in 2003.
