Villalar gets its name in homage to the intimate relationship the Monastery of La Mejorada had with the defeat of the Comuneras troops by King Carlos I in the fields of Villalar; upon his orders General Padilla was buried at La Mejorada, and not in Toledo as originally intended by his wife María Pacheco.

Villalar is singular, expresses the characteristics of the terroir of La Mejorada, evolves extraordinarily well over time and exhibits all virtues of the soil, climate, varieties and labour of man.
