Mercedes García Rupérez sitting on bottles of wineAfter more then 10 years working to update Montecillo’s wines, our oenologist is convinced of the virtues of the terrior and the vines of the Rioja Alta, which, in combination with stringent, precise and respectful vine growing, result in honest wines with great personality. This is what Mercedes García Rupérez and her technical team have achieved in our winery: a renewed range that is part of the tradition of the brand and the region, and that is capable of going beyond, taking its character, so rooted in this area, to a more up-to-date and unique expression.

For Mercedes, the main challenge of this evolution has been in learning to innovate. And the learning was initiated where all the best of Montecillo starts: in the vineyards. Working on the viticultural aspects, selecting small parcels, working ever more closely with our vine growers. Showing definitively that a passion for the land and more than a century of experience of a historic winery are essential for enthrall the public of today.
