Characteristics of Las Gravas
Las Gravas is a red wine from Jumilla prepared by the Finca Casa Castillo winery. It is a blend of Monastrell (70%), Syrah (15%) and Garnacha (15%).
Once harvested, the grapes are destemmed without pressing, each variety is barrelled separately in small batches. Manual movements are performed for about two weeks. The capacity of the tanks is 6,000 litres and the temperature is 28 degrees.After racking, a process whereby the skins are removed, the varieties are left in new French oak barrels of 500 litres. In these, malolactic fermentation occurs.
Las Gravas is aged for between 16 and 20 months, finally varieties are assembled before bottling. Finca Casa Castillo has a long history, since the winery was built by the French as early as 1870. It was acquired by Don Jose Sanchez Cerezo in 1941. In 1991 the winery was renovated and given the name it has today.
Finca Casa Castillo is undoubtedly one of the most representative and authentic wineries in Jumilla.

To speak of Jumilla wine is to really refer to the Monastrell grape variety. In recent years Jumilla has undergone an impressive transformation. Once used as concentrated and highly alcoholic wines to give strength to weaker wines from other regions, the wines from Jumilla have managed to change this reputation, now enjoying prestige from all over the world. Flavourful wines, with body and concentrated. As well as red wines, the region is also known for their rosés, again produced with the Monastrell variety.
In September of 2016, the person who raised the solid foundations of both the vineyard and the winery Casa Castillo, turned 80 years old. With a glass of wine in his hand, he remembers how the first grapes were vatted under his watchful eye 25 years ago. Today, he proudly watches as the continuity of his legacy is reassured by his family. Today, the main goal of Casa Castillo is to produce quality wines with the personality, flavour and character of each plot, which respect for the tradition of the area, and expressing the features of the land and the microclimate, as well as the particularities of the Mediterranean varieties, mainly on the native red variety Monastrell.
