Casa Castillo


José María Vicente

REGION: Castile-La Mancha - Murcia

Casa Castillo embodies the winemaking legacy of the wine region of Jumilla, within the province of Albacete, in the southeastern part of Spain. The property sprawls across a picturesque 402-hectare estate that is on the slopes of Sierra del Molar. Surrounded by almond and olive trees, the land is shadowed by the towering mountain range, ascending to heights of up to 760 meters above sea level. Within this meticulously preserved natural environment, teeming with indigenous vegetation and fauna, approximately 175 hectares of vineyards flourish. Here, the indigenous Monastrell variety thrives alongside Syrah, Grenache noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon, and spreads across four expansive plots. 

The Vicente family recognized the land's hidden gem—the indigenous Monastrell grape. This resilient vine thrived in Jumilla's rocky soils, revealing its exceptional potential. Meticulously restructuring the vineyards and introducing new grape varieties breathed new life into the estate. By 1991, the extensive renovation of the winery was completed, preserving its original charm and structure. 

Third-generation José Maria Vicente’s vision is clear: elevate winemaking practices and honor the terroir. Sustainability became the cornerstone of the business. Manual labor, low yields, and organic methods defined their approach. Harvesting is exclusively done by hand, with grapes promptly transported to the cellar for sorting and fermentation.
