Winemaker Notes

"I have had three bottles of the stunning 2002 Juan Gil, and it has been a remarkable experience on all three occasions. I tasted it next to some top-notch Bordeaux selling for five times the price, and it was by no means outclassed. Made from 45-year old Monastrell vines grown in rocky limestone soils, and cropped at 1.8 tons of fruit per acre, it is amazing that a wine of this quality can be found at this price given the weak dollar. A dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by gorgeous aromas of sweet black cherries, flowers, and background oak. Medium to full-bodied, supple-textured, expansive, pure, and persistent, this terrific Spanish red should be consumed over the next 3-4 years."

Bodegas Hijos de Juan Gil, Spain
Bodegas Hijos de Juan Gil Winery Image
This winery originated in 1916, when Juan Gil Giménez, great-grandfather of the present generation, started getting involved in the world of wine, building a winery in the heart of Jumilla. His son, Juan Gil Guerrero, dedicated his life to this world. But the ones who really consolidated the project were Juan Gil González and his brother Paco, the founder's grandsons. They forged an image of quality, efficiency and reliability which the present generation is trying to maintain and improve as much as possible.

At present, the Gil Vera family, Juan Gil Lencina's great-grandchildren, are the owners of Bodegas Juan Gil. They decided to start a new cellar on the property that the family owns in Jumilla, in order to get it adapted to the market. This new cellar is situated in "Término de Arriba" in the northwest of the city. It is so called because it is the highest point in Jumilla. It has been a winegrowing area for centuries and yields grapes of extraordinary quality.

Red Wine

Known for its bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy red wines, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.

Most planted and respected is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
