Felix Callejo, a winery in the heart of Spain #wine #Spain #winery
Felix Callejo was born in Sotillo de la Ribera, Spain, in a family with a long tradition in the world of wine. He had always dreamed on elaborating his own wine and in 1989 he achieved his goal with success.
Since 1999 he takes care of the technical management of the winery, the vineyard and the winemaking process.
The vineyard, that is exclusively Tempranillo is situated in Sotillo de la Ribera, in the province of Burgos. The high altitude is the responsibñe for large temperature contrasts which improve the maturity of the grapes. Moreover, the variety of soils that are found in the vineyard gives their wines a wealth of nuances.
The main feature in their winemaking process is based on the use of indigenous yeasts and once the fermentation is finished, wines gain complexity in exclusively French oak barrels.
Flores de Callejo 2013, one of their most famous wine, is a red wine very aromatic with marked notes of berries. It is 100% Tempranillo and it is kept 6 months in barrel.
