Bodegas Castejon

In 1959, Miguel Castejon started his winery on the outskirts of Madrid in the small town of Arganda del Rey. He was one of the first in this region to bottle his own wines. For a long time, all the grapes produced in this region were sold to wineries in the neighboring region of La Mancha. Miguel saw they had good enough quality to bottle their own wines. As a result, he started his own winery.

Bodegas Castejon is located in the viticultural region that is known today as Vinos de Madrid. Before they recieved this appellation status, they fell into the larger appellation of La Mancha. However, in 1990, the separate status of Vinos de Madrid was granted, and the wines could finally be recognized for thier own distinctive qualities. The traditional verietals of the region are Tempranillo and Malvar. However, Bodegas Castejon was the first to experiment with Cabernet Sauvignon. They are excited about the future prospects of these grapes as the vines yield better fruit with age. They have also started reducing yields in many of their vineyards to produce more concentrated fruit. Today Miguel's son, Miguel J. Castejon, is following in his father's footsteps as a wine producer. Both father and son work side by side in running the winery as it moves towards the future.
