El Barro Vineyards & Wineries is the result of all the experience and knowledge accumulated over 3 generations of a family of winemakers from Toledo, whose beginnings date back to 1892.

Their vineyards and wineries are located in the  Méntrida PDO, an area of great tradition in wine production, where they faced a deep transformation to adapt to nowadays market trends.

In viticulture, we have made plantings of varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, etc., to obtain grapes developing the qualities of the variety, together with the peculiar environmental conditions of the area to the north of Toledo. These grapes, wisely processed at the winery, basing on tradition and the most advanced processing techniques, develop their complex and diverse nuances and aromas.  Later on, when aged in wood and bottle, these wines rest, strengthen and lengthen their qualities, which over time will be delighted and remembered for posterity.
