In Toledo, in the Castilian plateau, where Casarrubios del Monte is situated, with its residents, its sometimes undulated lands, but generally flat, ocher, yellow for its cereals, green for its extensively green vineyards.

It is difficult to know how it started, who planted the first vines. It must be very old because it seems that the vines have always been there.

However, someone paid attention to the sandstone and limestone soil composition. Also, someone realized that short and cold winters in contrast to long, hot summers were another advantage.  Yes, someone must have realized it, because we now know that these things are the most ideal conditions for the successful development of the vine. And this time passing, so long for the people of Casarrubios, the countless hands stiff with cold, the shirts soaked in sweat, taught some lessons.   The knowledge passed from one to another, it was accumulated, and grew bigger and bigger.

A proof is the superb quality of the grapes obtained, prominently the "garnacha", small, round, sweet and in tight clusters. We can also find the varieties of Tempranillo and Cabernet, although in a lesser proportion.

In this vineyard paradise LA CERCA wineries in the year 1957.

The success achieved can be measured by the gradual and spectacular extension of the wine cellar.  From processing capacity of 300,000 liters in the beginning, in just two years this amount was doubled. Later on, it was expanded to 1,200,000 liters and now we have a capacity of 2,500,000 liters.

The wineries, interesting for its antiquity and its excellent state of preservation, are open not only for those fans of good wine, but also to its history. At the same time we have strived to continually improve our wines and have the latest winemaking technology.
