Peña Caballera is a red wine from the Vinos de Madrid region produced by the Marañones winery. This wine is made using only Grenache grapes.

Peña Caballera is a single-vineyard wine, which means that all the grapes are taken from a single plot. The plot used spans 1.5 hectares, home to vines that are between 50 and 70 years old. The vines grown on granite soils with sandy loam textures that are no more than half a meter deep. The vineyard is also located on a north-facing slope at an altitude of 850 meters.

Cultivation of the vinyards is carried out organically and the grapes, after being transported to the winery, are vinified whole. Firstly, the grapes undergo a phase of pre-ferment maceration using native yeasts. Following this, fermentation takes place in open oak vats of 33 hectolitres of capacity. During this phase various pumpings occur in order to encourage efficient extraction of colour and flavour components

Finally, Peña Caballera is aged for 12 months in used 500litre French oak barrels. The wine is then bottled without being clarified or filtered. Production is limited to 2,500 units.


Marañones is a winery located near the city of Madrid led by Fernando Garcia Alonso, an agronomist and oenologist, and Fernando Cornejo, a lawyer and owner of the vineyards. The company produces some of the best wines in the Vinos de Madrid region.

For the Marañones Winery, “landscape wines” is not just an advertising mantra. They handcraft the flavors and nuances presented by the unusual environment of the Sierra de Gredos, where they have a mosaic of vineyards which work under biodynamic principles in the DO Vinos de Madrid. They’re committed to the varieties of the area: Garnacha, Morenillo and Albillo, which come from old vines which grow in impressive high-altitude vineyards. In short, wines made with honesty and dedication.
Pictures and situation Marañones
Although Madrid wines (Vinos de Madrid) are still relatively unknown among consumers, the region has enjoyed a prestige and historical past that dates back to the twelfth century. Current wines in the region however are far from the old wines of San Martín de Valdeiglesias, who in their golden years were perceived as some of the most prestigious wines in Spain. Today, the Vinos of Madrid face a highly competitive wine scene, but the effort local wineries regain this old prestige is evident in the quality of the wines being produced.
