Bodegas Castaño is one of the referents in the wine sector of the southeast Spanish for its trajectory and achievements obtained with the varieties of the zone.
Ramon Castaño Santa’s relationship with the world of wine goes back several generations, both winemakers and processors. In 1950, Ramón built a new winery, updating the technical means with which he counted and expanding the family vineyards. In 1975 it acquired its first vineyards in the place of “Las Gruesas”, but it was not until 1980 when it began to bottle, an attitude that seemed too daring in the then conservative wine world of Yecla.
The gradual incorporation of his three children – Ramón, Juan Pedro and Daniel – to the family winery throughout the 80s, brought a new approach: to strengthen national markets and to begin a stage of expansion into international markets.
