Our steps follow paths of the countryside. A landscape of vineyards and balance in the heart of La Rioja. Here is where everything starts.
THE HEART OF LA RIOJA
A unique place in the world
Montecillo's origins are in Fuenmayor, one of the towns with the longest traditions of vine growing in the Rioja Alta. Surrounded by vines and close to the waters of a serene and benevolent river, the majestic Ebro, Fuenmayor's surroundings are set amongst flat topped hills, and in the distance, the distinctive rocky mass of the Cantabrian Mountains.
The nature and passion to elaborate great wines
Since time immemorial, the people of our town, Fuenmayor, in the Rioja Alta, have known of the unique viticultural quality of Montecillo. It is the beautiful patch of land that gave name to our winery many years ago and now symbolises an ethos and a way of life: the origin and cornerstone of what we are.
Respect for the land, care for the vines, the search for exceptional quality, the strict selection of the best vines. Nature both determined and grateful, which reaches its ultimate expression thanks to our wealth of experience working with barrels and bottles. All this is in the DNA of the third oldest winery in Rioja: Montecillo.
