We are a small winery located in the town of Méntrida, a town with a long history in wine-making that gives name to the designation of origin from the northwestern province of Toledo: MENTRIDA PDO

The winery is part of the family home whose oldest part, the cave smashed by hand, goes back to the seventeenth century. There our made wine in clay jars.

The current project led by Jose Benavides Jiménez - Landi and Daniel Gómez Jiménez - Landi started in 2004 with the sole aim of producing wines based on respect for nature, tradition and balance with our environment. It is precisely the belief that nature offers its best gifts when it is grown with respect that leads us to make, in the 27 acres that we own, organic farming and get started in biodynamic practices.  The fruits thus obtained express the characteristics of soil and climate, land and sky.

Our work focuses on the Garnacha, the queen variety in Mentrida PDO, without neglecting other varieties that complement it as the Syrah.

The philosophy of elaboration is that of reflecting the properties of our land, looking for elegance and balance in the wines.
