Rioja Alta is lined with countless bodegas that have made their home on and around the Ebro River, but hardly any can look back on such a long success story as Bodegas Montecillo.

The old Bodegas Montecillo

Bodegas Montecillo - exquisite red wines from the Rioja wine region

Founded in 1870, the winery near Fuenmayor, the old wine town not far from the Ebro, relies on the fusion of traditional viticulture and modern cellar facilities. The very late hand-harvesting of ripe grapes by hand ensures a perfect balance of fruit, acidity and aroma. The result is the typical wines in the classic modern Montecillo style.

From a small bodega to a renowned top winery

Bodegas Montecillo, the wine cellar on the small mountain, has been farsightedly managed since its foundation by Celestino Navajas Mature. His son learnt the craft in Bordeaux, which immediately led to the cultivation of the local typical Tempranillo grape variety. Even years later, under the leadership of José Luis Navajas, the innovations in the vineyard and cellar did not stop. In 1973, when the renowned Osborne family took over, the Bodegas Montecillo was transformed into a new form. Major investments in new facilities and modern technology were the result of the founders' original desire to establish the wine that is symbolic of Rioja internationally, but not to close their eyes to the future. Personalities like Marie Martinez, Rocío Osborne and vintner Mercedes García Ruperez ensured that there would be no standstill.

Viticulture at Bodegas Montecillo

Today, as in the past, Bodegas Montecillo's cultivation is concentrated on old vines which, although they produce less yield, give the wines a strong character. The vineyards are situated at up to 800 metres above sea level and are exposed to cool winds. As a result, the grape varieties pass through a slow ripening phase, which creates intense acidity, fruit and aromas. After the best grapes have been selected, the harvest is transported to the estate's own cellar. The must from the gently pressed mash ferments in different tanks, so that a complex interplay is created in the wine. The cellar master Mercedes García Ruperez has conventional stainless steel tanks and Ganimede tanks at her disposal. The latter are ideal for a rich extraction of colour and fermentation substances and the separation of the fine tannins of the grape skin and the harder tannins of the grape seeds.
