Bodegas Monastrell was born as a personal project of the marriage formed by Alfonso and Mavi, natives of Bullas and heirs of a long agricultural family tradition, where the love of the land has become passion and enjoyment for the production of well made products.
Own vineyards, illusion and a solid project well designed are the foundations of this new winery, which in 2005 vinifies its first vintage.
The work team is joined by winemaker José Jiménez, who has gradually developed a style of winemaking that optimizes the exquisite production of monastrell reds, one of the best adapted to this unique natural environment.
From the first moment grapes have been produced under the guidelines and philosophy of Ecological Agriculture, by conviction and spirit of naturalness and environmental sustainability.
