Méntrida, like other famous wine regions of La Mancha, is steeped in history. The vines here grow under bright blue Castilian skies in a landscape which enjoys spectacular views of the snowy mantle of the Sierra de Gredos. The character of the wines produced here, tough and honest, were always enjoyed by the Habsburg Dynasty in Madrid. That being said, a new generation of wine is emerging, albeit at a slower rate than other regions in Spain, renovating wineries with modern equipment with a generation of young winemakers who are producing pleasant and balanced wines, some have even managed to recover the local flavour of its wines using the classic earthenware jars, now appreciated and fashionable in other areas.
Bodegas Canopy was born from the dream of Belarmino Fernández Bombín and Alfonso Chacón Gil, two oenologists and winemakers, which in 2004 after finding a very special vineyard, started their project on the soils of the D.O. Méntrida, in Toledo. They own a few estates of vines planted at 750 metres altitude on siliceous soils with abundant granitic bedrock, in the mountains of Sierra de San Vicente, between the valleys of the rivers Tajo and Tiétar.
