This winery inaugurated in 2003 is located in a restored XIX century wine cellar. It represents modernity and renovation in the center of the traditional region of La Mancha. Their goal is to make excellent wine using their own vineyard, tradition and the most advanced state-of-the-art winemaking technology. Their wines are commercialized under the denomination of origin Vinos de la Tierra de Castilla.

They are very pleased to show the winery and offer their wines to anybody who wants to pay them a visit. They want their winery to be a meeting and learning space for wine lovers. Their proposal is VINADEMUS a comprehensive wine course offered in 5 sessions in the same winery. They also have opened a new gourmet store in Madrid dedicated to a selection of wine and quality gastronomy products, called Productos de la Tierra - Products from the land

They have 120 hectares of vineyards that cultivate: Garnacha, Tempranillo, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon for making red wines, and Airen, Chardonnay and Moscatel for making white wines. An innovative restructuring program will replenish Castiblanque’s old vineyards with newer, nobler grape varieties, limiting production to increase quality. They pay a lot of attention to grape control in the vine with a meticulous monitoring of the field’s maturation. Their aging cellar can hold 1000 barrels and they also have an aging cave with capacity for 500 barrels and 100.000 bottles.

One of Castiblanque’s most revolutionary innovations was the centralization of production, elaboration and marketing of its wines all within the same company. Therefore, maintaining complete control of our products from start to finish and watching over all phases that quality winemaking demands.

They produce two lines of wine, the younger Ilex with whites and reds, and Baldor, only red aged wines.

The winery can be visited but it is necessary to make an appointment. Vintage Spain can also arrange VIP visits to this winery and offer tours in La Mancha that include a visit to this winery and different activities.
