Our steps follow paths of the countryside. A landscape of vineyards and balance in the heart of La Rioja. Here is where everything starts.
THE HEART OF LA RIOJA
A unique place in the world
The origin of Montecillo is found in Fuentemayor, one of the oldest wine-growing towns in La Rioja Alta. Surrounded by vineyards and very close to the waters of a serene and generous river, the majestic Ebro, the natural environment of Fuenmayor is marked by flat topped hillocks, and beyond, by the distinctive rocky mass of the Cantabrian Mountains.
The nature and the passion for elaborating great wines
For a very long time the people from our town, Fuenmayor, in La Rioja Alta, have known about the unique quality of Montecillo´s viniculture. It is the beautiful area that years ago gave its name to our bodega, and today symbolizes a vocation and an identity: in the vineyards lies the origin and foundation of what we are.
The grateful and tenacious nature, which achieves it maximum expression thanks to a rich experience of work with barrels and bottles. All this is in the genes of the third oldest winery of La Rioja: Montecillo.
