Trusted Shops Reviews

Casa Castillo Pie Franco is a red wine from Jumilla prepared by the Finca Casa Castillo winery. It is a Monastrell varietal.

The grapes used for this wine comes from the Pago La Solana estate. The vineyard, over 70 years old, is oriented southwest and covers an area of twelve acres.

The soil is rather sandy, on artificial slopes with a continental and Mediterranean climate. Once in the winery, the grapes are destemmed without crushing and placed in small underground presses in which, by manual movement, alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts is performed. This process is carried out for 12 days at a controlled temperature of 26 degrees.

The pressing is vertical and malolactic fermentation in contact with lees occurs in new French oak barrels of 500 litres.

Casa Castillo Pie Franco is finally aged in the same barrels for 22 months.

Casa Castillo
is located in the highlands of Jumilla and aims to produce wines with personality that express the character and uniqueness of each plot.

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.

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.
