The AALTO project was founded in February 1999, in the prestigious winemaking region of Ribera del Duero (Spain). The foundational aim of Mariano Garcia and Javier Zaccagnini in AALTO was to make a wine that shows a different personality, of high quality and being a faithful reflection of distinct locations, blending them at the end of the aging process to obtain balance and complexity.
A few years later, in 2006, Masaveu and Nozaleda families joined AALTO, both owners of wineries in other wine regions of Spain, providing experience and stability to the project, which meant the consolidation of the winery to this day.
From its beginnings in 1999 until the harvest of 2004, the production of our wines took place in rented facilities in Roa (Burgos, Spain). While the project was being established, the founders began looking for a new place to locate their own new winery. A beautiful plot of 15 hectares belonging to the municipality of Quitanilla de Arriba (Valladolid) was chosen.
The first phase of the new winery was completed in 2005, being that year the first harvest that was produced in these facilities. The modern design chosen for this new winery was carried out only with the very highest quality criteria. The architecture of the winery is perfectly integrated into the environment, in a typical Ribera del Duero plateau, with a lineal and harmonic design without ostentation, and minimalistic details, elegant and comfortable. The second phase of the winery corresponding to the more social part of the winery was completed in 2016.
In 1923 Baldomero Moure started to produce his first wines in one of those small and humble wineries in plot in A Cova. But thanks to Carmen's inheritance and the savings brought from America, he began to acquiring farms in the area and built a winery (on the current farm in Cunas).
In the 1950s, the winery already began to be small, and it was decided to build a larger and more modern one. It currently houses the barrel room and the room of vinification of wines aged in wood. Here ??? elaborate? on truncated-cone wooden casks of French oak between 3000 and 7000 liters of capacity and carry out aging in oak barrels of different origins.
At the beginning of the years 2000, the main winery was built, which currently houses the laboratory, the tasting room and is the place where we produce young wines and small vinifications and experimental trials. Wine production is used stainless steel, although other materials are used in the experimental area. This winery was conceived in order to operate by gravity and with the highest technology to respect to the maximum the integrity of the grape.
Winery founded in the thirties of the last century that has produced txakoli for several generations. It has its own vineyards and since 1989 it has been incorporating modern equipment and machinery to produce excellent quality txakoli. Its txakoli has a white fruit scent, is balanced and offers a pleasant fresh finish.
Basa-Lore produces Getaria Txakoli with the Getariako Txakolina designation of origin. This guarantees that its careful elaboration and quality control are respected, offering the consumer an excellent wine. The Basa-Lore winery has been making txakoli since the 30s through several generations. It has its own vineyards and combines tradition with advanced technologies to obtain the best results.
DE MOYA is a family winery founded by Yves and Sofie Laurijssens. Built on a foundation of family values, hard work and tradition. The family Laurijssens is known for their expertise in successful “turn arounds” in Belgium.
Yves and Sofie started the winery with a passion for Food, Family and Fun. If you are lucky enough to be invited to a family dinner one day, it will quickly become clear what this means.
Their approach is in many ways distinct and different. They are famous for “out of the box thinking”. Whether it is for the packaging or for the winemaking. They always come up with unconventional but simple solutions.
In the mid-nineteenth century, the upheavals produced in European viticulture by the phylloxera plague caused the rapid extension of vineyard cultivation in the Jumilla region, which at that time was not a first-rate viticultural center as it is today. In 1870 and taking advantage of these new circumstances, an enterprising wine broker named Roque Martínez founded, together with two partners, the first commercial winery in Jumilla. His son Pedro Luis Martínez García, already alone, made the family business prosper during the first half of the following century in such a way that, to this day, the name "Pedro Luis Martínez" is synonymous with quality wines, business solvency and business honesty. In 1929 his mistelas won the Grand Prize at the Universal Exhibition of Barcelona. At that time, the winery could house a total of 300,000 liters of wine, obtained through the procedures of the time: treading the grapes in the presses, pressing the pomace in vertical presses, and stored and aging in wooden barrels. In 1957 the ownership and management of the winery passed to the next generation. In this period, the winery expanded its capacity to reach a capacity of 3,500,000 liters, acquired new buildings, expanded the old ones, and was modernized in technical means; belonging to the D.O. JUMILLA since its founding. In 1983, the company became a Limited Company, whose shareholders were entirely direct descendants of the founder. The management remained within the family environment. In 2011 the winery was acquired by the BASTIDA FAMILY, changing the commercial name to Bodega Alceno, and providing new wisdom and adapting the wines to the consumer, maintaining the same philosophy of the winery, where investments were made and continue to be made to adapt the winery to the new consumer trends, currently has modern winemaking techniques, In recent years, adapting to the times and market trends, BODEGAS ALCENO SA The concept of single varietal production is changing, such as the native Monastrell variety, and it also produces wines from the coupage of varieties such as Tempranillo, Syrah, Garnacha, Garnacha Tintorera, Cabernet Sauvingon, in reds and Sauvignon blanc, Verdejo, Airen and Macabeo in whites. , not ruling out Rosés, sweets with natural carbon dioxide, etc. and being the first winery in Jumilla to elaborate the first Champanoise Rosé de Monastrell method, the current management and technical team of the winery, which has been directed since 1997 by the oenologist D. Juan Miguel Benítez García, has not given up in its effort to experiment new wines with which to break into the national and international market firmly and decisively. As a result of this effort is the launch of its first bottled wine, made from the Syrah, Tempranillo and Monastrell varieties, which is marketed under the name "ALCENO" and is available in White, Rosé, Red and Selección (wines, the latter , subjected to its refining in new American and French oak wood), all of them awarded both nationally and internationally by different associations and competitions.
Bodegas Arloren is a dream come true. A challenge assumed by a typical Spanish family, which from generation to generation have lovingly captured the history of the good work of 4 generations in extraordinary Spanish wines, full of values and personality.
Bodegas Arloren ...
... was founded in 1972 and its main activity is the production and aging of quality wines. The company has its main headquarters in Murcia and the winery in Canada del Trigo, Jumilla, belonging to its Denomination of Origin. This denomination, which includes some 30,000 hectares of vineyards, has been highlighted by the specialized press as an emerging denomination of origin for the quality and originality of its wines.
Bodegas Atalaya is the Gil Family Estates project, in which it participates together with the López family from El Pilar de la Horadada, in the Almansa Protected Designation of Origin, located east of the province of Albacete, between Valencia, Alicante and Murcia, in the transit area between the Castilian plateau and the Mediterranean Sea. The first harvest of Bodegas Atalaya dates back to the 2007 vintage, since then progress has been made in the facilities and investigating in the elaboration of the Garnacha Tintorera and Monastrell varieties to give shape to the current range of products, which reflect the character and the personality of the land that give it the most emblematic varieties of the area. Bodegas Atalaya thus maintains the imprint that the Gil Family Estates group wants to reflect on all the wines in its portfolio, showing the most genuine essence of the wine-growing areas from which they come.
Ateca Winery, founded in 2005, is the project of the Gil Family in the Denomination of Origin Calatayud, placed in the municipality of Ateca (in Zaragoza), 14km far from the city that names this D.O. Ateca wines are the result of a detailed work on selecting the grape, with exhaustive analytical and organoleptic quality criteria, coming from a harvest done in the precise moment of ripening. The Australian enologist Michael Kyberd is the technical director.
Founded in 1821 in Sanlúcar de Barrameda, Bodegas Barbadillo fulfills a centuries-old tradition as a 100% family winery producing the denominations, Jerez-Xeres-Sherry, Brandy de Jerez, Vinagre de Jerez, Vinos de la Tierra de Cádiz and D.O. Manzanilla-Sanlúcar de Barrameda, which leads with a stock share of over 50%.
In a small paradise in southern Spain, Sanlúcar de Barrameda, the Barbadillo family bottled the first Manzanilla in 1821. Since then, this family-owned and centennial company has not stopped growing.
Barbadillo is one of the 10 largest and oldest family businesses in Spain. Bodegas Barbadillo, with almost 200 years of history, continues to be a 100% family business.
Bodegas Barbadillo has been at the forefront of its sector for centuries, being a pioneer in many aspects: Bottling the first chamomile that left for Philadelphia in 1827; They were the first to name this type of wine "Manzanilla"; First Andalusian white wine made 100% from fine palomino in 1975.
The first steps of this winery began to bear fruit at the end of 2001, as a result of the collaboration agreement between the Gil Family and Chris Ringland, one of the best Australian winemakers.
The first harvest to be marketed is the 2002 vintage under the El Nido and Clío brands.
In the 2009 campaign, the first harvest of Corteo is made, which completes the current range of Bodegas El Nido wines.
The winery is located in the Valle de la Aragona, 10 kilometers north of the city of Jumilla, within the "upper term", so called because it is the highest altitude area within the municipal term of this city.
The vineyards, located in the surroundings of the winery, are mostly planted on very limestone soils and stony on their surface. In the subsoil, about 30/40 cm. deep, there is a layer of tosca (limestone of medium consistency) that covers the entire extension of the vineyard, its thickness is between 15 and 30 cm. and underneath there is a very sandy ground to which the roots extend. The altitude varies between 700 m. and the 850 m. above sea level. They are made up of small parcels with a total of 32 hectares of the Monastrell variety, of very old vineyards and some almost centenary, 12 hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon and 1.8 hectares of Syrah, planted on gentle hills facing north.
BODEGAS EL TANINO is located in the emblematic place of Los Altos de Santiago in Hoya Gonzalo, province of Albacete.
Established in January 2006, the winery is made up of partners from the municipalities of Hoya Gonzalo, Chinchilla de Montearagón, Bonete and Pozo Canada, among which a production of approximately 3 million kilograms of grapes is concentrated, of which, about 80% correspond to the Garnacha Tintorera variety, with the rest being produced from varieties such as Syrah, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Macabeo and Chardonnay
The main objective of the winery is to work with love and effort in viticulture. We take care of the vines in all the stages of the plant, from the vegetative period to ripening, in this way we obtain and select the best grapes from vineyards grown at 970 m s. n. m. where the weather and the type of soil provide quality and distinction to all our wines.
The Garnacha Tintorera, despite being the most unknown, has shown an optimal aromatic and polyphenolic potential for aging in barrels.
Four generations, one name
Since 1916, when Juan Gil Jiménez had the winery built, only one clear idea has moved the following generations in charge of the same:
Doing a good job and being prideful of the Juan Gil name and commercial trademark.
Juan Gil Guerrero, a founder’s son, firstly, and then his grandson Juan Gil González, improved and consolidated the winery, applied the traditional knowledge of their job transmitted from parents to children. Nowadays, the fourth generation, linking the tradition with the technical revolution, is the one that enjoys the result of the work done by the predecessors.
The international recognition of the quality of our wines is summarized in the name of Juan Gil.
A particular style
In this place, with extreme climate and strong contrast, is where our winery is located.
With hot summers of intense sun, long and cold winters, a difference of 25oC between day and night, almost total absence of rainfall, and with a dry and stony ground. These land particularities are which gives us the character we have, which marks our people and, of course, our wines. It’s our way of doing things.
In the kingdom of Monastrell
The vineyards are located between 700 and 850 meters of altitude, on a sandy and limestone soil, stony on the surface and very poor in nutrients, with a great holding capacity of the little water it receives. It’s the kingdom of Monastrell, a grape variety owned by this region that is present in the vast majority, and exclusively, in all our wines.
Next to the old vines, aged more than forty years, and other younger Monastrell ones, also grow Syrah, Cabernet, Merlot and Petit Verdot grapes, which are well suited to the terrain and provide intense shades of spices and fruit.
A new age
Since the building of the new winery many things have changed. The new way of making wine needs technology: rigorous temperature control of wine, stainless steel tanks, and excellent hygienic conditions throughout the process, assures each year the quality levels.
But wine is not only "made" in the cellar, the first is the vineyard. Therefore, the situation of the vineyard, next to the winery, allows comprehensive monitoring of the evolution of the grapes needed to obtain a great wine condition. It’s a new age, with new wines and a mixture of old vines and new techniques.
Bartolomé Abellán is the enologist and who coordinates the rest of the technical divisions of the GFE group.
The winery produces between 280,000 and 300,000 bottles per year in total of the four wines: Mauro; Mauro VS or Vendimia Seleccionada, which has a longer ageing period the grapes sourced come from the very best vines in two parcels; Terreus, from a single vineyard; and Mauro Godello, a white wine made with grapes from Villafranca del Bierzo.
Bodegas Orán is a winery that seeks develop fun and easy to drink wines: Wines that are suitable for any time and place. Our wines are made with self-imposed standars of excellence, honesty and the humility that we have learned of our ancestors.
Our aim is that every person who choose any of our wines remembers it as unique, and we work hard for not disappoint anyone. This is why the most important to us are our vineyards.
The grapes are harvested in October in a perfect health. Therefore we choose our native varieties that are perfectly acclimated to our area. Clay soils and an altitude of 600 meters of our vineyards allows us to produce outstanding wines. This uniqueness is reflected in its fresh and fruity aromas. In our processes, the vintage combined with the varietal aromas bring about elegant, delicate and possibly with aging potential wines.
We are perfectionists and we think the best wine is always about to be done. This forces us to strive year after year and take each harvest as a challenge.
The Bodega Santa Cruz de Alpera was founded in 1947 by 25 winegrowers. Their goal was to create a winery to elaborate their own wines and this journey leads us to today. After more than 60 years of experience and with larger vineyards and totally modernized facilities, the new face was challenges ahead. It aim to keep the cooperative identity; the winery offers unique products due to grow a single variety, Garnacha Tintorera. With about 3,000 hectares cultivated, more than a third in organic farming, the winery meets markets in several countries.
The facilities of Bodegas Tridente are placed in Villanueva de Campean, 30km south from Zamora, in the center of the so-called Land of The Wine. The winery, small sized, was designed for small productivity of red grapes, especially those of Tinta de Toro variety, indigenous of the land and with a tradition in the region. They are also produced the Prieto Picudo and Mencía varieties of grapes, coming from old vineyards with a low productivity, from Bierzo and León regions. The Gil Family is accompanied by Enrique Busto in this project and the technical direction is managed by Frank Gonzales, Australian enologist with a Spanish origin.
Bodegas Vega de Tera is the result of a humble dream that arise in the noble region of Castilla and León, more concretely in a small village of Zamora, located on the Tera river bank.
The twenty-five vineyard hectares are located under cover of the Camino de Santiago (AKA the Way of St. James); with clayey ground, they are worked ecologically since the beginning of the winery by the enviable human team. Five red grape varieties grow in them (Tinta de Toro, Prieto Picudo, Tempranillo, Syrah and Merlot) and one white grape (Verdejo).
Since ancient times, wine and art go hand-in-hand in this region along the pilgrimage route.
This project of the Gil Family, in partnership with Enrique Busto, started in 2008. The winery and its vineyards are located in the southeast of the D.O. Rueda, in the province of Segovia. Belinda Thomson, from the Australian Crawford River Winery, where some of the best white wines in Vitoria Valley are produced, is in charge of the technical direction.
The winery Javier Sanz Viticultor is located in La Seca, the heart of the Rueda Denomination of Origin. Javier Sanz is the great-grandson and successor of Agustín Nanclares, who began this tradition by cultivating the vineyards on his property called Villa Narcisa. Now, he has assumed the reins of this winery combining, in perfect harmony, tradition and modernity. The geographical location of the wineries and vineyards is essential to understand the quality of their wines. It is in La Seca (Valladolid), with its vineyards next to the Ribera del Duero (some even only 1,500 meters from the Douro River), where there is the highest concentration of vineyards in the entire river basin. The total area of La Seca covers 2,744 hectares, twice as much as in the immediately lower town. In addition, in this town there are 16 wineries, of which 14 belong to wine growers, and two cooperatives. Among all the wineries are able to produce and process more than 20 million kilos of grapes of the total 60 million O.D. Wheel.
The proximity of the Javier Sanz winery to the vineyards, located in the first banks of the Ribera del Duero, facilitates an almost immediate transfer of the grapes after harvesting, taking a maximum of four hours, thus keeping intact all their properties and aromas. The Javier Sanz winery has 104 hectares of cultivated vineyards. The surface is composed of sand and boulders and the subsoil by a clayey layer, which favors ventilation and natural drainage of the vines. These unique characteristics that are found in the town of La Seca, together with the microclimate of the area, are what differentiate us from other Verdejos of the D.O. Wheel.
The knowledge and know-how are the main assets of a winery that takes great care in the whole process of making their wines. This tradition was maintained over the years until in 1995 the Villa Narcisa brands were created, currently their "flagship product", and later Holy King. The work to offer the best product, begins with a special care in the most traditional relationship between the winegrower and the vine, to culminate with a modern winemaking process that manages to faithfully preserve all this family philosophy of winemaking.
Lagar da Condesa is the project held by Gil Family in the D.O Rías Baixas, in Galicia, with place in Val do Salnés. The winery is located in Arcos da Condesa, with a great winery tradition, in the municipality of Caldas de Reis where the thermal water is linked to the vineyards since long time ago. The winery, built in granite, as the typical Pazos from Galicia, and surrounded by vineyards, has the most modern technology. The winemaking whole process is aimed at extracting the best qualities of the grape. The harvesting and processing is manual combining the traditional method with the latest technology and respectful with the Albarino wine grape variety of this region and with all of our wines. The first crop at this winery corresponds to the year 2013.
With the name of Orowines, the Gil Family has developed some commercial brands with a different, uninhibited and modern image. These are wines coming from different Spanish vineyards in where the Group has placed its wineries. White and red wines are produced with surprising freshness and elegance prevailing in all phases of their tasting. The idea is to produce very commercial wines with a refreshing packaging.
The wine-making origins of the Padró family date back to the year 1886 and to the village of Brafim (Tarragona), which was, at the time a busy agricultural hub with around 400 inhabitants.
The very first sales were of wines and liqueur wines loaded onto carts in large but basic barrels and sold directly from there by the first generation of wine-making Padros: Daniel Padró Porta (1846-1890) and his wife Rosa Valldosera. At the time, they ran a fairly humble establishment with just one press and a small amount of distillery equipment for making spirits and anise liqueurs.
The fifth generation, currently in charge of the winery, are following the same philosophy as their ancestors and producing quality bulk and bottled wine, liqueur wines and vermouths and have taken care to make sure their company keeps up with the times as regards modern wine-making processes and technology (tangential filtration, continuous tartaric stabilization and so on…) at their bottling plant as well as extending the Padró family vineyards and implementing a new grape reception and wine storage facility.
After more than 25 years of experience, elaborating and understanting the soils, varieties and the climate of Alicante, Pepe Mendoza begin with his wife Pepa Agulló Llorca and his children, his own little personal project.
To the first 14 hectares of Monastrell, Syrah, Alicante Bouchet, Airen and Macabeo, distributed througth Sierra Salinas and Pinoso, “Alto Vinalopó”, they already joined 10 more hectares of Giró-Garnacha and Moscatel of Alejandría in Lliber, “Marina Alta”.
A winery surrounded by hundred-year-old vineyards.
The winery boasts a peculiar shape of plain and symmetric lines which are juxtaposed with the surrounding worker. Despite this, it is perfectly integrated in the landscape of the valley. The winery is built with traditional materials and is surrounded by the vineyards that provide the valuable raw material.
Inside the building you can visit the modern winemaking facilities, taste products and contemplate the landscape while enjoying a delicious meal in the restaurant on the upper floor.
In Barahonda they make balanced and expressive wines full of colour and flavour; complex wines which have their personality and which every year achieve prizes, awards and high scores by the best wine critics in the world.
As the Barahonda logo proclaims, wines are linked to the field, made from the vine. Grapes are carefully raised as it is an essential part in the personality of a quality wine.
Adegas Terra de Asorei is six families of top growers belonging to the Rias Baixas Designation of Origin who have banded together to produce premium 100% Albarino wines.

The Salnés Valley is located on the left bank of the estuary of Arousa.
Adegas Terra de Asorei has a professional human team that search for the perfection in the elaboration of the wines and in the service to their clients.
After several generations devoted to cultivation in vineyards, the family Martinez Verdú takes over for their parents. The family cultivates and lavishes attention on the vine with traditional methods, regulating the production in the vineyards with gobelet pruning, hand picked grape harvesting and a total respect for the natural environment of the valley, due to ecological practices in the vineyards, and using new technological innovations while at the same time remaining faithful to the autochthonous variety: Monastrell.
The lands are located in the Northeast of Jumilla, in natural surroundings, near the mountains “La Cingla” and “Los Gavilanes”, which are at 800 m. above sea level, in the “Valle Hoya de Torres”. This valley is characterized by its calcareous, sandy and stony soil, which doesn’t favour the propagation of phylloxera. This allows to grow the sort of vines called “pie franco” (European root) in the microclimate characteristic of this valley, the perfect environment for the cultivation of grapes.
