Born in the heart of La Mancha at the beginning of the 20th century. Production, elaboration, bottled and aging of wines.
From the construction of the first, small winery, this family owned and operated firm has maintained a constant and progressive evolution, introducing improved techniques in the processes of elaboration of its wines, amplifying the extension of its vineyards, and selecting and rigorously caring for its variety and fruits.
Today, a fourth generation of the family, supported by a young and enterprising team, assures the continuity and future of the firm.
The main characteristic and essential quality of the winery is the careful selection of grapes from the own harvest.
At present the firm has a winery for the elaboration of its wines which originate from the three parcels of the Santos family property. The three parcels, property of the Santos family, have an extension for 2,100 hectares of which 600 are vineyards
The majority of the vineyards are found in our property known as “Monte del Alcalde,” located on both banks of the Riasanares River, extending some six kilometers along the river bed as it winds through the locality known as Corral de Almaguer.
Along with the variety “Tempranillo”, we have others, newly introduced to the region, such as Syrah, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Sauvignon Blanc and small Muscatel, are produced. Their vines are trained on trellises; they adapt very well to these lands with a slight irrigation support and they produce grapes of superior quality and ample enological possibilities.
