Cañada del Trigo is situated on the border between Alicante and Murcia. The pretty village has many traditional properties and some modern villas in the countryside. Pinoso town is 10 minutes by car, Alicante airport and beaches are 50 minutes away
Weather conditions of the region, low rainfall and number of hours of sunshine per year and the soil characteristics make for suitable cultivation of the vine and the wine industry drives the economy of Cañada del Trigo. There is a cooperative of wine and other wineries in the village. The most characteristic product of this district is Quesos al vino (cheeses of the wine) which has a denominación de origen. Its crust is smooth, very light and has a garnet-red color due being washed in red wine and salt whilst maturing. It is a cheese that can be fried with tomatoes if fresh and is typical of the regions of Jumilla and Yecla.
The village is near to the mountain Sierra del Carche and the lands surrounding the wine crops are protected by pine clad natural areas. Here we find species of flora and fauna such as thyme, rocket, rosemary, lavender, and conifers. Birds of prey such as owls, golden eagles, peregrine falcons or eagles and mammals such as wild cats, foxes and wild boars live in these natural areas.
