Montecastro is a barrel-aged, single-variety Tempranillo red wine made by Montecastro Bodega y Viñedos in the D.O. Ribera de Duero (Castile and León).

Montecastro was set up by friends who joined forces in 2000 to make their dream come true: making quality wines in the heart of Ribera del Duero. The winery started out with the support of French winemaker Bertrand Erhard, which then peaked the interest of Peter Sisseck himself. So since 2012, the prestigious expert’s wine group, Hacienda Monasterio, has taken responsibility for the technical management of new productions. This includes a range of fresh and very elegant wines that are well-known around the world.

Montecastro comes from an exceptional vineyard with predominantly calcareous soils, located in one of the highest areas of Ribera del Duero, lying at 860-930 metres above sea level. The vines are cultivated using environmentally friendly agriculture, with no pesticides, and the stain yield is limited. This results in a concentrated grape with very good acidity.

Montecastro is made through spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts and a maceration of about 15 days in thermoregulated concrete tanks. It is then aged in French, American and Eastern European oak barrels for 17 months.

In collaboration with the team of the prestigious Peter Sisseck, Montecastro is only made in exceptional vintages. A Ribera de Duero red wine that has the support of prestigious figures like Julio Iglesias and Pedro J. Ramirez, and is also great value for money. Without doubt a wine that is full of good luck.

Montecastro is a relatively new winery. The idea of it emerged in 2000 thanks to some friends, among them, Julio Iglesias and Pedro J. Ramírez, who became partners to make their dreams come true: to plant vineyards in the hear of Ribera del Duero, to build a winery with the latest technology, and to make quality wines. The group was joined by French oenologist Bertrand Erhard, who perfectly understood the philosophy of the project. In 2002, they planted 27 hectares of vineyards in five different sites, with the aim of making country wine or ‘vino de la tierra’ from start to finish, at the same time as they built the winery, with the launch of their first vintage in 2002.
Ribera del Duero wine is one of the most prestigious wines in Spain. Red wines made with Tinto Fino variety grapes, with highly complex aromas, fine on the palate and with a great storage capacity. The wines of Ribera del Duero present a perfect balance between the vividness of the fruit and the refinement of the wood, which has led to them obtaining a well-deserved international acclaim.
