Montecillo’s roots are in Fuenmayor, one of the towns with the longest grapegrowing traditions in 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.
Since time immemorial, the people of our town, Fuenmayor, in the Rioja Alta, have known of the unique viticultural quality of Montecillo. lt is the beautiful patch of land that gave name to our winery many years ago and now symbolizes an ethos and a way of life: the origin and cornerstone of what we are.
Nature both determined and grateful, reaches its ultimate expression thanks to our wealth of experience in bottle and barrel aging. AII this is in the DNA of the third oldest winery in Rioja: Bodegas Montecillo.
