In the middle of 2001, this family business began with the restoration of an old 19th century winery, “Bodega El Montañés”, with the intention of preserving the old structure, maintaining the stone walls, the Arab roof tile, the internal structure of the pine wood and the rehabilitation of disused areas, adding the latest technological advances in winemaking.
The Castiblanque family, has a wine-growing tradition of three generations, since the grandfather “Templao”, Jesús Castiblanque Alberca, who started all the activity by manually planting vineyards of airén variety towards the 1950s. Step by step, with strong efforts and the help of his son Jesús Castiblanque Pintor, they expanded the plantation, all in the traditional system, planting the most in airén variety in whites and some parcels of grenache in reds, until practically achieving the current 120 hectares.
