Since the beginning of time, there has been wine in this area. Vine cultivation in the area dates back to the 2nd century BC, as confirmed by the discovery of a wine storage vat in the Celtiberian settlement of Segeda, located between the districts of Belmonte de Gracián and Mara. The first historical reference to the great quality of the wine can be traced back to the 1st century and Marcus Valerius Martialis, the historian born in the Roman city of Bilbilis.

The wineries today are heirs of those men and women who have cultivated their lands since ancient Rome, passing through the Cistercian monks in the Middle Ages, the cooperatives of the 60s of the last century and, since the 80s, grouped under the Designation of Origin.
