The winery MONASTRELL was born as a personal project of marriage formed by Alfonso and Mavi, natives of Bullas and heirs to 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 team is joined by the winemaker José Jiménez who, little by little, has developed a style of winemaking that optimizes the exquisite production of monastrell reds.
