Bodegas Fernando Castro

Bodegas Fernando Castro is a name that comes with 170 years (and counting!) of wine making expertise. They have passed their secrets of the craft down through each generation of the family-run operation. It is still today very much family-oriented. They have had much success, and their wine now is exported to over 50 countries. A huge collection of gold, silver and bronze medals, awarded across competitions all over the world in recent years, is testament to the fact that quality is still very much the name of the game for Bodegas Fernando Castro.

A long and rich history

The Castro family began making white and red wine on their Santa Cruz de Mudela property in 1850. They began to sell their wine a few years later. This was boosted immensely by the advent of the railway in 1861 in the area. By 1895, they were transporting their wine into Madrid on the now famous "Wine Train". International export soon followed, and thus began a long and successful period of spreading fantastic wine all over the world, whilst never forgetting the traditional roots.

Finca Los Altos

Bodegas Fernando Castro now has a handsome 380 hectares of vines located in the Finca Los Altos region of central Spain. They make whites, reds and rosé wines. In terms of their red wines, they tend to opt for Tempranillo, Garnacha, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah grapes. When it comes to the whites, they favour Airén, Macabeo, Chardonnay, Verdejo and Sauvignon Blanc.

Knowledge, passion and craft

Deep knowledge of the soil, the climate and all the intricacies of the landscape informs their ability to carefully fine tune their wine-making process. Although they have expanded to a great extent from when the family operation first began all those years ago, there is not one element of the process today which is not assiduously deliberated over.
