Winemaker Notes

The very limited production of this wine begins with the careful selection of the best grapes from years in which the harvest is considered to be exceptional. After a lengthy maturation period in oak barrels, and a further prolonged ageing and refining process in the bottle, the resulting wine is a brilliant and intense ruby red with brick-red highlights, polished and elegant, and showing all the personality of a great Rioja wine.

Bodegas Montecillo, Rioja, Spain
Image of winery
In 1874, Bodegas Montecillo was founded by Celestino Navajas in La Rioja Alta. It is therefore one of the longest established wineries in the Rioja and with the greatest tradition in the making of wines protected by this Denominacion de Origen.

More than 130 years after it was founded, Bodegas Montecillo strictly adheres to its prime objective: to produce natural and full red wines with personality by carefully selecting the raw material, the grape, and by allowing its wines to naturally age and mature in their bottles. This results in a highly consistent level of quality year after year.

The winemaker, Mercedes Garcia Ruperez, has a degree in Oenology from the University of La Rioja and in Agricultural Engineering from the University of Madrid. On top of that, she has a master's degree in Oenology and Viticulture, also from the University of Madrid.
